& More

The Electric Passage is one of several bridge segments featured in the project.
Through these bridges, Artist A. ferries experiencers from one level of the experience to the next. This particular sequence is one of two featuring Alessa, Artist A's Keytar, on screen.

The Electric passage is a fusion of Keytar Rock Performance and Green Screen animation. 
The sequence also represents the evolution of AAW Sessions, Artist A's performance Rock series, with installments released since 2017. 

"This is a personal favorite of mine in the project. Dark 2 Light serves as an incubator for my next work. It is only the beginning. Combing such visuals with my LIVE Performances will be another potential direction. And the composition created is one of a melding, shaping volcanic painting.  To push the limits of the mediums and media of which I am working with. To evolve my practice forward with these particular processes. It is an exciting adventure. And one which I look forward to bringing you on." - A

Dark Dark World is the first of the four core pieces which found the project. 
This piece was intended for LIVE Performance. Then the Quarantine was enacted. In the solace of the studio, Dark Dark World took on a whole new life. It became an immersive work with  sound effects and green screen animations. 



Truth and reflection. 

It's all right here. And It's dark. It's Dark Dark World!


And those pretty little shells

They're You

You see out there

& They're me
