Body Place plays with body politics and gender neutrality, in a light hearted projection of vivid colour and bold form. This immersive work will envelop the viewer with empathy, an embodied mind shifting sensation within a safe virtual space.
Treating the body as a site is the building principle of the work, to examine and test the limits of our biological perceptions. April Phillips is a Wiradjuri-Scottish illustrator, visual arts educator, and researcher based on the south coast of NSW - Yuin country. April is currently experimenting with new modes of visual storytelling and character design with the VR space.
