Bryn Oh builds virtual reality environments that convey the juxtapositions between human emotion and machine sentience.
I use virtual spaces as art mediums which focus on creating deep levels of immersion within the viewer. The Brittle Epoch is a virtual story where visitors can log in from various parts of the world to experience this Immersivist art.
My artistic focus is in the way modern society is affected by technology, ranging between human/machine and machine/machine relationships. Often we consider technology to open channels for people to interact and engage socially, however, the opposite can occur where people become isolated within their own personal bubble, separate and witnessing the world from a distance almost as a product with brittle popularity. My work expresses a yearning for meaningful connections within the new technological realm that often contains human remoteness. I build virtual reality environments that convey the juxtapositions between human emotion and machine sentience. I combine poetry with a melancholy narrative that explores the themes of connection and belonging.
