The two-channel video installation aims to transfer contemporary human emotions into visual digital culture and non-verbal codes. Our desire to connect with other species (AI, nature) is explored through the premise
that it is rooted in deep existential fear. This emotional experience requires dominance, seen here as a form of captivity: by investigating artificial environments we create for this purpose, I question whether we can still see ourselves as a part of nature. Lastly, a tactile experience is sought by visually conveying limiting and unpleasant sensations.
