My Daughter Aaliyah, 2016
VR experience for Mobile VR
“Their piece is a surreal meditation that “works thru ideas of the erotic” set to the audio backdrop of the thundering tones of *that* overwhelmed Christian mother getting mad about Vince Staples from viral video fame. The piece feels like it’s more than about bodies or swimming pools or one white woman’s enraged reaction to rap music — it abstractly and elegantly seems to touch upon the current political climate in America.”
- Sophie Atkinson of Daddy.Land
