Studio Visit (2018)

Mixed Reality Installation

In Studio Visit (2018), Theo Triantafyllidis re-imagines the gallery space as his own virtual studio. In the creation process, he embodied an Ork avatar, who used digital tools to create 3D forms, a process which was recorded through DIY motion capture. The project considers the concept of virtual labor and production in today’s hybrid-reality work environments, as the avatar Ork experiences the frustrations and complications of artistic labor in the virtual studio
