Olivia McGilchrist

In MYRa, we are invited to witness the totality of a spherical watery world by being given a double insight: the exterior view of the seams and peripheries of the image and the experience of being thrust into its regenerative interior. This project is centered around the tension occurring between the physicality of bodies and their virtual representations, through VR and video installation. It features the artists body in dialogue with several bodies of water (ocean, lake, river), whilst exploring the absence of a deceased friend.
