The current work-in-progress: An audio-visual installation called Silent Temples, on which I am collaborating with my colleague and friend, an audio engeneer and artist, Vilius Jokubaitis. Together we are working to fuse the magic of ancient Baltic signs and symbols with 5.1 surround and animated photomontages. An installation comprising 90 minute projected film and 5.1 surround soundtrack 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.
In 2012 I worked on an installation called “Be-tono” (“toneless”) for the audio-visual poetry festival Tarp 2012 in Vilnius, Lithuania. I contributed a large scale photomontage called Altar Shadows, which was inspired by life and work of an early 20th century Lithuanian writer and poet Vincas Mykolaitis-Putinas. The festival then invited a number of contemporary poets to write their poetic interpretations of the image, which were then put onto grey silicate bricks and arranged on the floor. Installation was shown at the Vartai gallery, Vilnius and then travelled to Klaipėda, Lithuania, where it appeared at the I.Simonaitytė’s library.
