These two solo exhibitions provide large scale immersive environments involving 'virtual' performers in a ubiquitous networked space consisting of costume, glass sculpture, photography, and networked digital interactives. It involved investigation of developments in technology and network code. The exhibitions contribute to critical discussion concerning uses of conventional media within a new context provided by installation and digital media; the interactive elements exploring how spaces are negotiated by the spectator within public and private domains.
