I was so happy to be able to show work again at BYOB as part of Brighton Digital Festival at The Dome. I'd been messing around with projection mapping and wanted to build on the work I made for the same event last year.
Last year my work was about bringing a forest inside the Dome, so the viewer felt they were inside; it surrounded by trees and nature. This year I wanted to bring the forest inside but make the viewer separate from it.
The forest was contained within a child-like tent. Forests and nature are e huge connection to childhood from me and I always have a feeling of nostalgia when I’m surrounded by trees. This work was exploring that and how I’ve grown up but the forests I loved as a child are still the same.
I somehow feel I’ve, not outgrown them but have a caring and protective feeling towards them.
