Ephemeral Sculptures

Immersive video/VR art experiences that take you on a spiritual journey into beautiful inner worlds. These are unique works of art filled with a high vibration aliveness that engages your curiosity and inspires a mystical connection. Let them draw you in deep.

The Ephemeral Sculptures are video/VR journeys through miniature worlds of enchantment built inside a tabletop sand tray, using potent archetypal symbols, rich multilayered textures and vibrant color palettes to create a unique effect that is both luxe and refined yet primal and raw. 


The experience includes a spoken word narrative with original score and sound design.

I call them ephemeral because once the piece is filmed, the sculpture is taken apart, the pieces returned to their baskets and bins, the sand swept clean. They no longer exist in solid physical form.
