“Drifting amongst the jellies and basking in the light that pierces the darkness from a single point, this piece comments on our ability to reflect on our relationship to nature, including recognising our duty to understand the significant effects our consumption has on the world around us through use of natural resources and damage to the ecosystem” The figure inside the environment is a free download digital outfit, ‘Outfit 4’ from the ‘Deep’ collection on The Fabricant (thefabricant.com., We are encouraging a sustainable way to explore personal identity, focusing on a reduction in water use, toxicity and CO2. My avatar is depicted swimming inside a virtual reality ‘Underwater’ world and brings these issues to mind, whilst also conveying messages of the digital self, digital bodies, digital presence and self expression inhabiting VR metaverses” Says Kadine James

Submerged is a Virtual Reality environment, ART directed by Kadine James, and created in Tilt Brush by Lorna Inman, combining her underwater world with digital fashion. This piece comments on our ability to reflect on our relationship to nature, including recognising our duty to understand the significant effects our consumption has on the world around us through use of natural resources and damage to the ecosystem.
Kadine James, Founder of The Immersive Kind is reimagined as an avatar, using ‘Outfit 5’ from the open-source ‘Deep’ digital garment collection on The Fabricant website. The Fabricant is a digital-only fashion house which holds an ethos centred around sustainability, they encourage “a sustainable way to explore personal identity”. Kadine’s avatar brings these issues to mind, whilst also conveying messages of the digital self, digital presence and self expression.
Lorna’s 3D environments often depict natural landscapes, using them as a method of expressing messages and emotions about the human connection to nature, by projecting ideas onto scenes through use of colour, form and atmospheric cues. Using software called Tilt Brush to hand-paint each scene in virtual reality, the illusion of presence in the space offers a place to exist and reflect; bringing the viewer closer to the art and further inside the artist’s interpretation.
Accompanied by a bespoke track designed by Sound Designer and Composer Jack Hyde, which seeks to bring the visuals to life. This imagined soundscape is layered with underwater recordings and synthesised aquatic pings and deep knocks, which help to add a sense of depth and space to the piece.
Jack said “It's important to reflect on and draw attention to our place in the natural world. The sounds and music used here attempt to support empathetic attitudes towards ecology and the diversity of life.
