Currently his work reflects about "what is lighting beyond light?" has an attempt to change the main focus on the source of light to other elements that he manipulates such as glasses, mirrors, prisms, shadows, reflections, playing with the act of projecting videos, but also manipulating motors and the traditional concept of stage art.
