An outdoor projection loop on the Princess Street side of KIAC/DËnËkÄr Zho running after sunset each night.

the universe at home explores human identity at a microscopic scale. This video comes from questions about where a person ends. Do we end at our body’s surface? Or do we extend beyond our skin?

the universe at home uses everyday materials to visualize the blending of human microbiomes in daily life. Similar materials to those in this video have been used in the past by the film industry to create cosmic imagery. the universe at home explores a much closer landscape.


In this looping video I explored the depths of rendering eyes using AI image generation. By recursively generating 100 different eyes I wanted to explore if and how the dataset being referenced would exhaust itself or start repeating. The eyes were then substituted for my original eye and presented as various pairs of eyes.

Watching the video can be unsettling as the viewer’s gaze is constantly drawn around the screen as eyes open and close. As humans we are drawn to eyes and can’t help but look as each one reveals itself. We are also attracted to patterns - trying to find the pattern in this video can be frustrating and elusive.

A video poem.

DREDGE11(retrograde) is an immersive virtual reality experience designed by J/KLYNK, an experimental filmmaker, digital media artist & music producer living and working on the traditional and contemporary territory of the Tr’ondëk Hwëchin in Dawson City, Yukon. Their work examines the dichotomies of nature/technology, digital/analog and generation/de-generation with an eye towards liminal spaces. DREDGE11(retrograde) is the culmination of a year’s-worth of learning and experiments with new technologies and techniques, including visual programming, generative video, VR design, 3D modelling, photogrammetry, phytogrammetry, modular synthesis and artificial intelligence. The piece explores the liminal nature of the Klondike Goldfields, encapsulated by a burned-out and decaying Dredge #11, presented as an explorable and manipulable object in a 4-dimensional space, interwoven with aspects of artificial intelligence and plant-generated celluloid motifs. The soundtrack to the whole experience is a generative and constantly evolving piece composed by J/KLYNK using digital modular synthesis. This project is supported by the Yukon Government’s Advanced Artist Award and the Klondike Institute of Art & Culture.

Pythogrammetry: a technique that uses the internal chemistry of plants for the creation of images on photographic emulsion.
Artificial Intelligence: a field of science concerned with building computers and machines that can reason, learn, and act in such a way that would normally require human intelligence or that involves data whose scale exceeds what humans can analyze.
