CITY DUMMIES is an evolving series of born-digital works, marking a departure from traditional filmmaking technologies to emerging post-cinematic engines (namely: Unreal Engine). Depicting a fictional yet hyper-realistic stylized city, fragmented cityscapes—and the activities that occur in them—form an intricate puzzle. Based on almost 20 years of experience as a visual artist working with spatial scenography, light, sound, and video, CITY DUMMIES brings deep knowledge and expertise from the physical to the virtual.
