BRENNA MURPHY, DOMAIN, WRAP, EXTRUDE

Brenna Murphy is the winner of the 2016 P3 prize. The judges were impressed by the ambition of her project, pushing into areas as yet little explored in contemporary art practice. Murphy’s prototype revealed a strong process of development and an ability to innovate across physical and virtual realms in both sculptural and photographic form. Her ‘wrapping’ of the photographic image around structural elements reveals a distinctive ambient aesthetic for computer generated environments, creating new modes of photographic vision. Utilising the latest VR technologies, Murphy brings a poetic element to her psychedelic computational structures, forging a distinctive artistic voice. The jury felt the exploration of perceptual elements across virtual and physical space offered vast, indeed, labyrinthine potential.
