Since summer 2018 I have been collaborating with my colleague and friend, audio engeneer and artist, Vilius Jokubaitis (Vilo Spice). Together we are working to fuse the magic of what remains of the ancient Baltic sign language with 5.1 surround and animated photomontages. The project is called SILENT TEMPLES and is planned to premiere in Klaipėda, Lithuania, in summer 2020.
Doorways to Mystery is a video installation I collaborated on with my colleague Darius Vaičekauskas in February 2019. The installation was a part of the Festival of Light that takes place every winter in Klaipėda, Lithuania. Video in the installation was inspired by a quote from an American ethnobotanist and a researcher of Amazonian shamanism, Terence Mckenna.
Gaiamycota reflects on the state of “what remains of the soil” of our planet… it’s accute predicament and foretells of a method to address this, given a global collective and cultural will.
I contributed two large format photomontages and a 15 minute video film to the project.

Gaiamycota premierred in September 2016 at the Futurecade show during the Festival of the Mind 2016 in Sheffield (UK) and had 9000 visitors. Here are a few photos from the show.
