the valley (2009)

The online project "The Valley" is a narrated virtual exhibition inviting the viewer to slow down and share the online space inhabited by two highly realistic computer generated people, a woman and a man, who invite the viewer to enter their quiet, meditative space and connect with them for a while. The project addresses the idea of virtual presence by creating an experience allowing viewers to share the space inhabited by virtual figures, encouraging them to reflect upon their own reaction to shifting notions of what constitutes authentic experience in the age of avatars, immersive virtual environments, and other forms of mediated and remote interaction.
