 Artist Statement 

Letta Shtohryn investigates the intricate relationship between the physical and digital realms, employing extended reality (XR) as her medium. Through a posthumanist perspective, she examines the notion of embodiment, considering the presence of non-human life forms, machines, avatars, aliens, monsters, ghosts, and the intersecting realms, both visible and invisible, that they inhabit.

Her research often blends the historical and the contemporary, seeking connections between the bio-techno continuum of contemporary times and the early (pre)industrial practices of engaging with technology and the occult. Drawing inspiration from non-normative epistemologies, Letta explores the interconnectedness of factual and fictional storytelling by employing speculative investigations, world-building, and visual narratives as her methodologies. Furthermore, Letta's work delves into gender constructs and gender representations, as part of her identity is being a full-time woman. To create her works she utilised an array of tools including CGI environments, 3D sculpting and modelling, VR, AR, video, machinima, and imagery.
