00:12 - 00:36 ‘ANTICOMMUNION’ (2022)

Role: Director and Visual Artist Software: Cinema 4D, ZBrush, Redshift, Adobe After Effects

'ANTICOMMUNION' is a piece I developed as a response to my feelings of dread and intrigue surrounding the concept of living most of our lives within virtually constructed worlds, which will no doubt reshape our perception of intimacy. The film centers around a female character wearing a virtual reality headset. We see her in various states of reverie and excitement, but we never get to see what she is seeing. As the subject of the film rotates to face a doppelgänger of herself across a table she mirrors the position of 'The Artist is Present' by Marina Abramovic before she is absorbed into the darkness. With this work I am calling into question what will be the nature of community in the future. Will interpersonal engagement be with others - or only with ourselves? Who will we connect when we pass through the red door of the metaverse?" Part of the selection for DAZED x CIRCA class of 2021, ‘ANTICOMMUNION’ was screened as part of an international exhibition at Piccadilly Circus in London, K-Pop square in Seoul and Shinjuku Square in Tokyo.


00:37 - 01:06 KID BRUNSWICK VISUALS

Role: Creative Director and Visual Artist

Software used : Unreal Engine 4, Cinema 4D, Adobe After Effects.

This project showcases my original character ‘Skeleboi’ and his world created for Kid Brunswick. A main theme of Kid Brunswick’s music is addiction recovery and dealing with one's demons. I wanted a way to visualize what is happening in the lyrics without depicting the artist, who promotes sobriety, enacting what he sings about. My solution was to create a skeletal version of him, like a shadow character or demon that’s always there in the background. In total I have done nine visuals for him, and together they have formed a narrative about this character’s journey. I found it really interesting to be given the opportunity to do that level of world-building over the course of two years.
