Crossing Over, 2001
My role in this project was as Media Artist, creating 2D and 3D imagery, both motion and still, for projection. I developed a series of digital paintings as concept visualizations for production designs. These paintings begin a trajectory in my work into allegorical narrative, magical realism, and exploded collage.
Doxology Opera brings together my research interest in symbolic language systems, design interests in immersive environments, and graphic/animation work, in service to the collaborative vision of the creative team, and the experience of the audience.

The Race in Digital Space Exhibit
"Crossing Over: Embracing her destiny, she joins The Sisterhood" from the Doxology Opera (1999-2001) series by Philip Mallory Jones was presented as part of the Race in Digital Space exhibit at the MIT List Visual Arts Center, from April 27 to July 1, 2001.
Race in Digital Space, presented in 2001 by the List Visual Arts Center in conjunction with a conference on race and technology hosted at MIT, featured the work of over 30 artists using film, video, new media, and web techniques. With an emphasis on cultural hybridity, the artists explored how electronic culture influences the production of identity, race, and nationhood as our conception of the historical document evolves. Organized by Erika Dalya Muhammad and presenting works created from the early 1970s to the present, the exhibition offered works that inhabit electronic space and engage these topics in creative and progressive ways.
