Presence Interference

Carinne Knight

Presence Interference is an interactive and immersive installation which illustrates an energetic and telematic system of communication between the human body and the environment. Each participant becomes both a transmitter and receiver, thereby creating a feedback loop of biotic data. By wandering close to a geodesic structure animated by a 360 degree, long exposure, timelapse image, viewers trigger various changes in the projected ecology. Inspired by biophoton theory and technoetics, Presence Interference visualizes a relational light spectrum between living entities through an abstract narrative of a water cycle within California’s redwood forests and coastal landscape. A contemplative space emerges to investigate anthropocentric interference within the natural world.

Carinne Knight explores the ephemeral imprints living entities leave upon landscapes by creating meditative spaces for reflection. As a digital artist and photographer specializing in 360° imagery, she integrates transcendental theories, ecological studies, and biotic relationships with conceptual art, physical installations, and virtual reality.
