Interested in creative experimentation across mediums and the abstraction between what’s sounded and heard. His practice is informed by existentialist theory to naturalist beliefs. Working with the idea of reconfiguring space and time, relocating environments through sound. His soundwork archives and resounds sites with re-constructed sonic environments. Re-activating spaces with a touch of positive silence and fostering a collective voice. Through blending the listening environment with the physical he encourages listening to what is unheard.Raising questions about how sound affects us in our daily lives. His visual work is aimed at posing a question through direct use of materials at hand and juxtaposes forms with performative aspects. Coming from a buddhist background, he also considers the forging of positive intents and connection between all existing life-forms. Relating and responding to sites carefully.
