Rockhaven Creepers Trilogy, 2018
Inspired by "The Yellow Wallpaper" written by Charlotte Perkins Gilman in 1932, “Rockhaven Creepers Trilogy” utilizes cinematic virtual reality to bring the viewer into the space of the abandoned Rockhaven Sanitarium in Glendale, California.
The trilogy presents three rooms, each inhabited by a dancer, a character, who through movement, embodies the various "nervous disorders" associated with female health in the 1930's and even through present day. The project uses the technology of virtual reality to physically and emotionally connect the audience to an embodied space and female stories. (9:52)
Dancers: Tiara Jackson, Kelsey Long, Samantha Mohr
Music: Found, Dealer & Denser by Nctrnm; Petal by Respawn
A Secondary Swirl – Virtual Reality work in progress, 2018
A Secondary Swirl is a reworking of my collaborative performance titled “A Secondary Swirl on Your Hardware” that was performed at Highways Performance Space in Santa Monica in 2016.
Utilizing video and text from the original performed version, the project is currently being created as an experimental virtual reality project. Using 360 video and flat video edited in After Effects using the Mettle Skybox plugins and 3D objects created in Maya, memories are recalled through handwritten scrolls that appear and animate across fantastic landscapes.
Additionally, parts of the project are being developed in Unity where the viewer will move through the landscapes described in the handwritten texts as immersive spaces.
“I am trying to remember something that never happened to me”
“Google earth showed two white dots in the French landscape”
“The cicadas returned that summer. All of nature vibrated”
