I've teamed up with up with SWEATSHOPPE to create Ouroboros, an
immersive 3D video installation in the Soho district of New York City.
The concept developed from ideas I kicked around on Reality Sandwich a

The installation is a work of visual poetry that contains animated
mandalas, geometry and collages. We aim to convey the unity of the
cosmos in the realms of matter, life and spirit, and to do it through
