Chelley Sherman

Chelley Sherman is a creative technologist and liminal researcher who explores non-ordinary states of consciousness and perceptual illusions through immersive installations, data-driven biosimulations, and digital recreations of complex, dynamical and self organizing systems as her contemplating practice. . Her computational models give rise to emergent lifelike patterns and behaviors, forming the foundation of immersive experiences that serve as meditative psychocosmograms. These works engage viewers in an intricate dimensional expression of the vastness and fluid nature of reality through noetic perception and symbolic representation. Sherman leverages concepts like annealing, optics, fluid dynamics and agent driven behaviors to evoke the intricate, ineffable expressions of multi- layered consciousness in both the physical and metaphysical realms.

Her acclaimed VR installations have been featured at events such as the United Nations Women’s Global Film Festival, SXSW, Nuit Blache and Mutek. Notably, Chelley’s contributions to the development of real-time systems at Sphere Las Vegas and for Emmy Award-nominated immersive films have been highlighted in Time Magazine as pioneering advancements in technology along with her collaborations with NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory.
