His works germinate from the core concern of ourselves as spatially and temporally co-existing beings, structuring available materials to examine conditions and issues arisen from such fact at the existential level, such as presence, consciousness and intersubjectivity. In this sense they possess a high degree of affinity with philosophical outputs from a.o. Nancy’s being-with and Rancière’s distribution of the sensible, and are able to utilise knowledge from a.o. anthropology, embodied cognition, semiotics as well as cultural and spiritual practices. Most of his works recruit the entire audio-visual sensory faculty and call for heightened attention and empathetic engagement from the audience.
