Student at SVA
I explore physical and abstract landscapes using photography and often painting to create expressive composite images.
Earth is a world that has vibrantly changed for billions of years. Volcanic, seismic activity, and life magically change the surface that we interact with. Life itself changes as it reacts to environmental changes. As humans we are unique in our intellectual capabilities to draw truth from scientific reasoning and simulate our future. As a species we have gained a significant power to minipulate our environment yielding new ecosystems faster than any other species. During the Antropocene we must stay vigilant with knowledge and steer away from greed while disarming hate.
Virtual reality is known as the immersion into an electronically simulated world. With the rapid advancement of technology yielding smaller more powerful computers every year connecting billions of people worldwide through an exponentially expanding internet, everyone’s lives are becoming more virtual every day. Wall Street is profiting off of the cryptocurrency bubble and our fingerprints and faces unlock our phones. Very soon everyone will poses the means to enter computer generated 3d environments and cameras are being built to move the places we love on Earth into cyberspace. The world everyone sees everyday is already generated by the world's most complex computer, the human brain. Our lives were born virtual, so what is reality?
