ART

I work with a range of mediums to explore how the digital landscape is shaping the perception of ourselves, others, and objects around us. My most recent work uses social AR via Instagram and Snapchat to mix the viewers facial and mobile gestures with augmented digital elements to create a unique marriage of the two worlds. I want to find out if the viewer can become more empathetic to objects when their familiar mobile gestures and facial expressions control it versus seeing it on the street or painted on canvas.
