I create immersive panoramic video tableaux using multi-screen projections and integrating various animation techniques to reference scenic dioramas found in a natural history museum illustrating a variety of habitats. My series of Video Terrariums represent supernatural landscapes, influenced from personal memories, dreams, places I have visited, folklore and literary references. My work investigates the tradition of the panorama in visual storytelling from ancient frescos, dioramas, magic lantern shows of the 19th century to new media art practices. My exploration of these formats is in consideration of our physical relationship to moving images and exploring new structures of time-spatial relationships in cinematic traditions. I explore simultaneous stories in a composition, and build up my compositions using photo-collage of places I document.
