Sound is a powerful media. It can be a way to communicate, and it can be the way to reveal an alternative perspective of our world. Moreover, physical and live experiences of sound can touch your heart directly and strongly. The aim of the workshop is to explore the alternative relationship between sound, body and environment through physical objects (large and small). The whole environment of Boisbuchet will be a trigger for the imagination. We will develop work whereby other people can share their sensations through your creations.

His works have been featured in many exhibitions and are included in the collections of such institutions as the V&A Museum (UK), Stedelijk Museum (Holland) and Die Neue Sammlung (Germany).
