In my work, I incorporate moving, still images, sound, technology and industrial materials to create allusions of recognizable landscapes/environments that examine the notion of space-time as a measure of reality. The viewer is induced to connect by exploring, interacting and at times by focusing on an object-place-scene for a duration of time in a manner that is both meditative and investigative. These environments/installations are void of a plot; in contrast, I provide the elements necessary for the production of an intimate narrative that takes place between what the viewer perceives and a record of my memory. It is an art of seduction, illusion and introspection where subject and representation exchange and engage in conditions that can allow the mind to convey from one reality to the next without the limit of boundaries.

    Based on the Yi jing* (the book of changes). I will develop an interactive installation that consists of a series of looping image/sound that investigate the relationship between inner and outer perception. It's a space offered for quietness and contemplation. As the viewer enters he/she will have the choice of stepping on a circle that will trigger the oracle to spin. Glowing images are projected on a diffused screen that seem to be emanating simple colors from abstracted images that somehow reference each one of the 64 hexagrams and they are combined randomly along with either sound or silence referencing John Cage's Williams Mix, where the composing means for determining its structure units and operation were also derived from the Yi Jing.
