7-Minute Single Channel Video Artwork

Luminous Festival, AUSTRALIA, October 2019- February 2020

Light Windows, curated by HoloCenter, New York, exhibited, Collingwood Arts Precinct, AUSTRALIA, 2020

CONCEAL is a fusion of digital and organic materials and processes, it uses digital methods to highlight hidden organic structures. CONCEAL affords audiences the unique opportunity to experience and engage with layers of physicality not often available to us in our daily lives. This artwork features photographs taken under microscope of biological samples that were collected from significant Melbourne (Australian) ecosystems. The video is formed from generative computer animations of the biological imagery. Ultimately, CONCEAL reveals hidden structures from our surrounding natural environment.

In making this artwork, PluginHUMAN aims to foster empathy between people and our natural world in order to encourage action on climate change.
