"An Immersive Art Experience;
The EXPERIENCE is an artist-driven, large-scale, fully immersive art installation that invites participants to explore a fantastical, multimedia environment through sight, sound, movement, and touch. This ambitious new project has completely transformed the second floor of the Hardesty Art Center. Five local lead artists have guided the creative direction of the project. The art itself takes the form of fantastical multimedia that guests will experience and interact with as they move through the space."

"Journey to the Center of the Universe" was commissioned as an interactive immersive art 'experience' for "THE EXPERIENCE" at ahha Tulsa. The Experience 1.0 ran from June 2018 to December 2019, and is now in its second iteration.

As one of the five lead artists on this project, I worked from Fall 2017 until our opening June 30th 2018 creating a space for play, exploration and that could function as a doorway into art and it's varied definitions. My 'piece' in two parts (physical spaces) titled, "Journey To The Center Of The Universe" centers around taking common themes and styles from my two dimensional work and expanding them into three dimensional space. Conceptually, the work plays with ideas about the journey of life, through grand representations of mother earth, the universe, or The World as described in the Tarot, all the way back to The Fool, or our beginning in novelty, innocents and naivete.
