Artist Statment

Part comic, part sonic, we invite you to star in our speculative world that dances between the physical and virtual. As our first collaboration, Cybernetic Rapture is a joint imagining of getting lost in cyberspace. We draw inspiration from the ambient song "Toi" by Visible Cloaks, Yoshio Ojima & Satsuki Shibano and infuse our own comedic take on a slightly dystopian adventure. We pair the image and the audio asynchronously so that readers may look, listen or read at their own pace. - Jessie Stainton & Caitlin Chan
