WARNING: Features blinking lights and other animations that could cause seizures in people with photosensitive epilepsy.

You, Copiphora gorgonensis' is an hour-long meditative experience for online audience focusing on interspecies relationships, psychoacoustics and presence.

Over five stages, participants undergo a metamorphosis into Copiphora gorgonensis, a grasshopper-like insect that - despite 650 million years of evolutionary divergence - miraculously shares our human inner ear structure. Listening, insectoid body-modding and time travel are used to position the interconnected sounding present within the vastness of space and evolutionary time.
