All Over Everywhere is a trans-disciplinary media and performance installation, which engages connections and confrontations between human beings the imperiled natural world by combining otherwordly video, sculptural elements, live performance, integrated lighting design and a vibrant, reactive sound score.

Following the structure of a requiem, this hybrid media installation is a cautionary memento mori for our compromised planet, where entire landscapes, coastlines and cultures are being radically altered by catastrophic natural events, which are growing in force and frequency due to our increasingly unstable climate. In All Over Everywhere, shifting weather patterns, mutating and eroding landscapes, undersea habitats and organic decay converge in a cascade of imagery that veers from meditative to chaotic, akin to a mind (or planet) erasing its own memory. Communicating an air of poignancy and loss, the work posseses an ethereal vibrancy and radiance, often witnessed in ecosystems or "living bodies " that are coming to an end.

All Over Everywhere is a requiem for what has already been lost, as well as a benediction for what remains, a ritual of mourning that leads to catharsis, a change in perspective, and a deeper, more intuitive understanding of the fragility of our existence on this planet. Inherent in All Over Everywhere are some of the most terrifying as well as hopeful questions of our time, questions that impact all of humanity and its future on this planet, considering notions of fate and the potential of a post-human world.
