My research is disseminated through both art and text. For select portions of the research, art and experiences are used to convey the ideas in the chapter. One experiences the ideas as opposed to reading them. These are “art chapters” that replace pages of text. This is an ongoing series of explorations.
a series of ongoing photography and code-poetry works written between Summer 2021 and Winter 2023. It considers the imagined sentience of artificial intelligence, and speculates on the consequences of its self-awareness, within the context of hypervolition. The entire collection of poems and photographs will be released in 2023.
a hyperfilm on our relationship with I.o.T. (Internet of Things) devices. This collaborative work is the result of a study of how we (myself included) view our present and future interactions with IoT devices in both negative and positive lights.
a short film addressing the concepts of hyperreality, digital/data over-consumption, and beauty. It explores the question of what is real, and the consumption of what isn’t. It draws on the concepts of hyperreal defined in Baudrillard’s Simulacra and Simulations.
an experimental audio portrait exploring the ideas of perception and art – how we perceive art, the importance of art, how we interact with art, and its influence. The experimental work is inspired by the written works several theorists — George Lamming, Neil deGrasse Tyson, John Berger, and Tina Campt.
an immersive audio-visual webVR experience that attempts to place you in my shoes as I explored what was happening in the world around me, when developing the ideas that led to “hypervolition.” The phrase “inter alia” is Latin for “amongst other things.” The piece places you in an audio-visual landscape, where you experience the news headlines as they fly pass you. This work is the result of a STEEP+V exercise.
a speculative fiction short story in an immersive audio format. It tells the story of a highly governed future society, and the struggle against it. This work uses speculative fiction writing, world building, and immersive SFX to bring the reader into a world set 50 years into the future, featuring the extrapolated ideas of hypervolition. It also hints at the positive advancements that have occurred as a result of the type of governance within this society.
Text outputs include journal articles, conference proceedings, book chapters, essays, monographs, and theses on hypervolition or adjacent topics.
