Life is a multimedia installation consisting of large-scale video projection. Multiple images of animals progressively appear on the surface of the arch-like shape. The artist selected a large variety of species reminding us that the man is just one among many... Images spew out of the floor following the curve and then disappear again in the endless rotation. Light effects intensify the decorative aspect of the work and invoke also the sharing of energy in the natural world. The piece evokes the cycle of life, evolution, but also reincarnation.
