The conflicting situations that are the starting point of my work are communicated using different media, mainly photographs, videos and objects. I use these elements so as to create discrete levels or planes behind or in front of the pictorial surface. The aim is to infuse the image with depth, liveliness and three-dimensionality so as to make it seem more real both to me and its eventual viewers; another aim is that it would enable me to share the original conflicting situations with the viewer. My term for the final works installed in a gallery or some other venue is ‘situation sculpture’.

FOUR VARIATIONS ON CONSUMMATION OF ELECTRICITY

In a sound artwork commissioned by Local Energy art event, musicians interpret the consummation graphics of electrical energy and produce four variations of them with the least possible energy. The live performance takes its final form in collaboration with the audience.
