A metallic tetrahedron floats through a milky abyss. All is calm. Suddenly, this geometric form dramatically deconstructs, atomizing into billions of fragments. What was once a negative space is now dense with chaos. All that was rational and understood has come undone. This is the beginning of a journey – one of creative destruction where everything solid melts into air, then condenses once more. It’s the hypnotic allegory of the eternal return, a spiritual journey where life and death are infinitely interchangeable. Through purely abstract forms and movement, Recoding Entropia questions the spectator’s place in the universe, offering an immersive journey into the mysteries of extinction and rebirth.

Nature Abstraction is an immersive sensory experience that explores the arcane forms of fractals – the mathematical visual representation of natural and biological forms. The project aims to give an insight into fractal formations through virtual reality, appearing as three worlds: Birth, Communion and Aether. The fractals have also been processed through Google’s Deepdream, transforming the landscapes into morphing psychedelic patterns that our eye will recognize as familiar, while the way the images are created aims to create a variety of random patterns on the canvas. And each world has its own soundtrack, intended to induce a state of relaxation and meditation

A Mixed Reality installation, Sun Within explores the topic of paradise not so much as an actual destination but a state of consciousness. The protagonist embarks on a special mission through the fictional worlds of collective consciousness devised by the Pleiadian-Sirian-Arcturian Civilizations of Light, who are dedicated aiding humanity’s transition to a new Era of Peace, Harmony, Unity, Oneness, Prosperity, Love and Wellbeing.

Produced by “The New Yorker”, this VR documentary takes viewers inside one of Xinjiang’s ‘reeducation’ camps. Since 2016, authorities in the autonomous Chinese province have implemented one of the most advanced police states in the world. By 2018, as many as one million people were held in a vast network of ‘reeducation centers’. It is likely the largest mass-internment drive of ethnic and religious minorities since the Second World War. Using hours of first-hand testimony, combined with hand-drawn animation, the recollections of three former inmates imprisoned in the same facility guide us, reconstructing the experience of detention and political reeducation in an immersive three-dimensional space.
