“A lot of artists during the pandemic were trying to build spaces as a way of escaping what was happening in our real spaces.”

“It was really challenging working in HTML this way … but I imagine this is just the starting point. I imagine building three different gardens, one about birds, one about butterflies, and one about bees.”

“My work is always this push pull. I’m very interested in the digital and technology, but I’m also very interested in performance and the body.”

“In this current ecological situation, what would these creatures have to say to us?”

Nathan Schager immersed in his piece “Abyssal Connections”

“I’m interested in exploring this interaction between humans and these creatures … I like the idea of attaching this digital ecosystem to a real one, even to create a voice for the ocean.”
