Artist’s Bio

Lucy Boyd-Wilson is a virtual and mixed reality artist living in San Diego, CA.

Inspired by the flows and processes of natural environments, she evokes a sensation of wonder for vibrant living worlds. She creates “Worlds in Motion” and places the viewer within, surrounded, enveloped. In an exploration of interactivity and immersion, she is always inquiring “What combination of stimulating and absorbing and meditative can be achieved?”

Lucy Boyd-Wilson studied Mathematics and Computer Science at McGill University in Montreal and worked as a software developer creating animation tools for the film industry, and then as a video-game developer. Now she works independently creating virtual reality and other animated and interactive experiences.
