Grand Slammer, 2016
VR experience for Mobile VR
Thinking about bodies // Thinking about this space that art provides (that space with multiple layers where violence and sensuality collide, ambivalently.) // Thinking about how inhabiting that space is not to condone the violence, rather to say objectively (and abjectly) that we too are present in this violence scape, whether we like it or not. // All this to say I'm working on this new VR piece about tennis (among other things).
