As a multidisciplinary artist, researcher, and educator Fleming's career focuses on the experience of being a “self” at various scales and in different forms of embodiment, both human and non-human. these scales can be described as the experience of being an isolated self, the collective self, to the transcendence of the self all together.
The strategies are varied and eclectic; from video and video installation, image making, performances, public gatherings, mindfulness workshops, virtual reality, augmented reality, motion capture, and expanded sensory input.
