Paloma Dawkins is a cartoonist and self-taught animator turned virtual-reality and video-game artist. Dawkins' previous games have been featured at world-renowned festivals and museums such as Manchester International Festival, Victoria & Albert Museum, MUTEK ,Garage Museum of Contemporary art, and more. Dawkins won awards at the Canadian Screen Academy Awards, Fantasia, FIVARS, Cinekid, NUMIX, and North Bend Festival. Dawkin’s games are praised for being digital spaces that celebrate natural life and rhythms and the worlds she creates in her games are spaces that incite creative thinking and wonder. Dawkins games and VR spaces carry on these themes and further invites us to be inspired by otherworldly scenes and scenarios, hypnotizing sounds and visual details, trippy patterns, quirky characters and cosmic poetry.
