1. Introduction to the SpaceGiven the limitation of the scale of her work, I couldn’t physically bring in her work to view in my exhibit. Instead, I opted to create an interaction in which visitors could see and hear her older larger-scale installations. A pressure sensor is used to detect the presence of individuals, prompting the screen to start/stop playing the video.
2. Materials: Sound and MovementVore has to do with a desire for unification with another being, which inspired this space where it turns from an individual to group experience. It also acts as a transition to the next area where “vore” is physically experienced, in which visitors feel as if they are being consumed by the environment. Videos taken from “Carriers” (2020).

This encourages the learning of the concept of vore to those that are unfamiliar, acting on fears such as darkness (“walking into the void”) and claustrophobia to elevate feelings as you interact with the space.
