All those small events, feelings and uncertainties can relates to the things which we face along the way. Each individual work of art highlights the potential for interaction and storytelling within public space and transforms common landscapes into carefully crafted scenes. Before leaving each installation behind, he documents it with a photograph. The photographs offer specific and intentional viewpoints of the artwork in relation to its surroundings, manipulating our perception of scale and dimensionality.
