When I saw how real virtual reality can be, and that we can replace human vision with virtual vision, this can be the ultimate platform.

I intend to explore the feeling of contracting and expanding through the manipulation of digital space and costume textiles. Through the use of sound and video distortion, the feeling of contracting and expanding can be further amplified and appear to swallow the performer, giving an off-screen presence to technology. Through this piece, I hope to investigate how video technology can create a powerful presence even in the absence of a physical body and how this presence can interact with the performer in a predatory-prey relationship.
