Finding Home Kayla Shears [Path_Finder; Kloud Nin9; E.Sunrise]

Finding Home is a multimedia, audiovisual installation that embraces “Prosthetic Reality,” denoting the presence of electronics in a space and transforming the viewer’s experience without the use of an application or device. The focal point of this installation challenges auditory and visual perceptions based around “Human Relativity,” the relationship human beings hold in relation to the space and objects or other beings around them. The movements in this piece symbolize Einstein’s Theory of Relativity by interpreting its three concepts: reality as having no “absolute” frame of reference; the speed of light being the same no matter who measures it; nothing can move faster than light. The goal is to realize that we are a collection of experiences housed in a body; and in terms of the perception of the outside world, the individual is, in this way, the centre of their universe. Finding Home takes into account the subjective and the objective; where the perception or the “location” of both physical and mental points of the observer, is everything.
