Michelle Brown is a Brisbane based multidisciplinary artist and producer focused on immersive and interactive art installations and creating storytelling experiences in the extended reality space. She has produced documentary series for Australian television, created music videos and visuals for a variety of artists and festivals and has exhibited work internationally and around Australia.

She focuses on utilizing digital technologies to experiment with visual storytelling to transform subjects and reshape the perception of space, inviting viewers to visualize alternative realities by presenting them with the possibility of re-defining the journey they take through a look at contemporary culture and future timelines.
