Most recent work and research is concentrated on translating and transforming the cinema concept into other forms like Live Cinema performances and audiovisual installations. His work includes ‘vortices’ and ‘probe’ reactive installations dealing with the relationship between the viewer and the screen. He collaborated with Brecht Debackere on the Live Cinema performance ‘Rotor’ (2005), and is currently working on a new performance ‘Vector’.
