***PLEASE NOTE: THIS ROOM FEATURES WORK THAT USE FLASHING LIGHTS, IF YOU HAVE PHOTOSENSITIVITY, PLEASE BE WARNED***

Synthethicket, or synthetic thicket, is a collection of the video art I’ve been producing from the end of 2020 to the beginning of 2021. I use a combination of analog modular video synthesis, camera feedback, video mixer feedback, and footage, both found and made by me. These experiments in video art explore the relationship of iteration, patterns, colors, and movement using unconventional technology, some of which I designed. I worked with artist Erin Daley who designed the 3D models that adorn the room, creating a forest of video art and disfigured tree-like objects. This room serves as a peek into the experiments and exercises in creating a new artistic practice that I have been pursuing for the last few years.

Please note, not all the artwork loads at once, get close to and point your cursor at an object to begin it loading. I invite you to walk around and even inside the art to get a full, immersive experience. Pressing the space bar consecutive times will allow you to float, get a new perspective from above.
