His artwork used to include ‘Light’ and ‘Time’ with an immersive delightful experience that the audience can dive into his artwork emotionally.
‘Rain of Joy’ is the name of his media art exhibition/performance and a surprising gift for the audience. It varies what the gift box has in but his overall goal is for the audience to interact and carry a dialogue with his work. And this points to one thing, ‘immersion.’
Rain to him symbolizes the power of life that comes alive by its movement. Rain makes you take a break and helps you to look around. It also brings back memories of happy moments. He often fills a room with digitally implemented rain and calls it a ‘Rain Room’.
In the Rain Room, you can find a delightful playground. Whatever you do, the Rain Room will listen and respond to you with delight. ‘Rain of Joy’ will be a playground and tears of joy for the audience.
