In my 2 years at Emily Carr, I focused my research on a longtime fascination with mythological hybrid characters. Through an interactive installation, In the Caves of Mt. Ida, I depicted moments from a hybrid's life in it's natural habitat. The viewer, while engaged with the animation, must remain quiet and stationary so as not to disturb the hybrid. If it is disrupted or annoyed it may respond unexpectedly, perhaps violently.
In addition, the work is a way to examine the complex personality of a so-called hybrid monster and its capacity for good and evil.
