‘Epiphyte’ is a virtual reality installation, presenting a hyper-real mediation of the wilderness. Unlike a Parasite, an Epiphyte is an organism that grows on the surface of a plant and derives its moisture and nutrients from the air, rain, water or from debris accumulating around it. Epiphytes take part in nutrient cycles and add to both the diversity and biomass of the ecosystem in which they occur. This gentle relationship harks to how we as people should become ‘Epiphytes’ of the natural world and form more of a symbiotic relationship with the wild, in harmony with it as opposed to the parasitic means in which we source our energies from nature at the present.
