"For the 6 months of being immersed in VR, becoming my Ork Avatar, moving my head and headset around and watching my blue ponytail move in the mirror was by far the most enjoyable moment." - From the artist diary for the Role Play series, 2018.

In this moving image work, Triantayllidis presents a lock of severed hair attached to a virtual sword; slowly turning while the blue locks undulate in a slow, virtual breeze. This intimate moment-object comes from Triantafyllidis larger practice of world-building, in which he uses simulated environments and NPC ontologies to understand how our physical realities converge with virtual experience.

Theo Triantafyllidis (b. 1988, Athens, GR) is an artist who builds virtual spaces and the interfaces for the human body to inhabit them. He creates complex worlds and systems where the virtual and the physical merge in uncanny, absurd and poetic ways. These are manifested as performances, mixed reality experiences, games and interactive installations. He holds an MFA from UCLA, Design Media Arts and a Diploma of Architecture from the National Technical University of Athens. He is based in Los Angeles.
