Displacing is an audiovisual experiment, part of the Shifting series.

A site-specific installation, it incorporates and translates sonic and visual elements from a secret garden in East London.
Sounds captured on site are transformed and their causal relations ambiguously shifted.


Shifting is a series of audiovisual experiments which explore the human ability to conceive perceptual environments out of ambiguous and abstract stimuli. 

Spontaneous and irresistible illusions are provoked by a disruption of the causal relation between sound and visual motion.

Thus starts a journey across imagined surroundings, a dynamic process invoking internal projections. The work heavily relies on the observer's imagination and capacity to render realities.
