The artist and musician creates sound and light installations that center around themes of nature, spaces, and spiritualism. His work at the Biennale interested me because of his use of shadow, especially the way the audience’s shadows are incorporated into projected slides of his collage work. The experience is amplified by a loud sound every time the slide physically changes since an old world projector is used.
