I am fascinated by the 21st centuries relationship with the ever-growing technology in virtual reality spaces. Stemming from an interest of storytelling in video games, putting yourself into a space of entertainment. Questioning the distance from the fake and real.
I have started a series of work looking at my relationship with virtual spaces, investigating the new technology and advances in video game quality.
A lot of my work speaks to video games with distinct human qualities. Questioning the ability of video games to change how we view our position in the real world; is death a failure of which you can try again, is life a linear adventure, is violence a part of human nature.
