I EXPLORE THE POSSIBILITIES AND LIMITATIONS OF IMMERSIVE INSTALLATIONS AND ESCAPISM WITHIN ART. I AM FASCINATED BY THE CONCEPT OF TRANSPORTING SOMEONE'S CONSCIOUSNESS INTO ANOTHER WORLD, ALBEIT TEMPORARILY, AND THE PARTICIPANT BECOMING SO ABSORBED WITHIN A SITUATION THAT THEY FORGET WHERE THEY ARE AND THAT THEY ARE IN A ROOM VIEWING THE WORLD AS A SECONDARY PARTICIPANT.
