Simulation Sickness

The dichotomy between the real and the virtual seems increasingly obsolete. Simulation Sickness explores the liminal space between the two, using techniques such as machine dreaming and chroma keying to create an inherently random design framework. Bridging this in-betweeness and the contemporary discourse on fetishism as a conceptual tool to inhabit alternative simulated realities. Fabrics and colours echo an imaginative approach to explore the unknown worlds of virtual mysticism and to examine the opportunities and responsibilities of a design process driven by fetishistic narratives.
