Giant Swan is a Melbourne-born virtual reality artist who creates alternative realities at the cutting edge of a new medium. His work has progressed alongside VR creative tools to control digital art using his recorded full-body movement, borrowing from mediums like painting, sculpture, and animation. His artistic influences are wide and varied, building from a life growing up in state parks to pop culture and video games mixed and Melbourne’s punk and hip hop scenes.
Giant Swan has collaborated with multiple Lo-FI and Hip-Hop Producers, exploring colorful, wondrous and ambient worlds populated with somber and thoughtful moments that encourage patrons to experience the moments themselves as an active presence in the scenes. His work appeared behind The Smith Street Band’s set at the 2017 Falls Festival and in December 2019, he was part of the Greenbank Art festival at the Modern Art Museum in Shanghai. async.art
