Digital composites of photography and graphic montage - with soundscapes, videos and interactive possibilities. Each work of art evolves within the concept of its message and in the spirit of the Prelude project.

"An action or event serving as an introduction to something more important"

The Prelude project utilizes art as a means to evoke ecological awareness by using the virtual space as a potential venue for its platform, enhancing the availability of its message. Based upon art with references to global warming and environmental change, the virtual tour of Prelude deploys each work of art into 360° equirectangular panoramas. The artworks of Prelude, were created during the years 2014-19, and has previously been exhibited in different venues and most recently, as a solo exhibition at the Photographic Centre Nykyaika, in Tampere, Finland (January 2019).

Art can affect society and give a voice to the cause through emotive engagement. The Virtual Tour of Prelude combines low-tech with emerging tech and art with science. It engages the viewer to explore the immersive art of Prelude and is an online project made available through the Kuula platform.
