Sound Aspects of Material Elements is a the film that shows a specific
approach to the artistic use of sound, covering a 3 year period (2006-2009)
of the author's personal research and collaborations with a number of 
close colleagues. What we hear and see reveals how much our ability to
listen with a creative ear, helps us re- interpret and build new relations to
what surrounds us. Using sound as the primary signifier. The film
documents in-situ processes of exploration and sonification of the
landscape along with various material, objects and structures found there.
All the sounds captured formed the basis for each shot emphasizing how
the combinations of certain materials (metal, wood, glass) along with
natural elements (water, wind fire), transforms our perception of even the
most common everyday places or situations.

Mimema is a meditation on states of liminality, of being in stasis, drifting
in-between above and below, night and day, inside and out. Mimema
started out as a sound composition and grew into a series of images that
reflected my desire to invert the world around me by capturing the 'real' and
making it 'imaginary', Much like a mirror that reflects the shifting states of 
human cognition we encounter moment to moment. Mimema is the blur
between what we sense and what we construct as understanding,
appearing as much a body as a fluid or boundary as a state of dissolution.
