A big preoccupation in my work is masks, and the idea that people take certain actions to keep parts of themselves unseen, whilst, simultaneously, revealing other parts. The process for UNEARTHED began with a curiosity about this. The Quill platform possesses a streamlined format that felt, to me, like water; giving birth to ideas – a sense on movement and flight – while orienting one’s eye to minute details. UNEARTHED makes use of VR technology to explore a mask as a 3D space. By zooming into and opening up each specific point on a face, new room is created for immersion and exploration, in an experience akin to entering the chaos in which the mind resides.
