Krystal's experimentation with projection mapping began in her VJ sets. Her current installation works extend into questioning the viewers perception of spacial awareness. Her installations have been exhibited at White Night, Gertrude Street Projection Festival & Digital Graffiti USA.
Krystal’s passion for Motion Design has extended her skill set into using programs such as After Effects and Cinema 4D. She is particularly interested in particle generation and generative dynamic animation. Currently she is experimenting X-particle simulations.
Within her live performance, Krystal mixes and manipulates her individually designed content assets. Along with live generated imagery, she experiments visually with geometric forms, as an expression of her phenomenological encounter with reality.
