Although the contemporary discussion on virtual reality and virtual spaces has often focused on the solipsistic nature of these digitally mediated worlds, my practice focuses on finding the places where virtual spaces can be used to supplement reality rather than supplant it. In my work, this ranges from scientific visualization- which involves giving form to otherwise invisible things and forces- to examining the unique interactive, narrative and expressive potential of 3D animation, novel technologies, and game engines.
