     Virtual Distancing is an interactive digital experience commenting on the feelings of anxiety during the current COVID-19 pandemic. The installation is comprised of a dynamic animated projection of particles that track motion using a mounted camera, as well as audio using an external microphone. When interacting with the work, it is my intention for viewers to consider their own experiences with the pandemic and how it has affected their behavior and interactions with society as a whole. I am very interested in how new media can bring a viewer or an audience into a fantastical world physically different from their own, and as an artist, I can harness this to draw parallels with the world we live in.
