Entanglement distills quantum physics into a swooping sensorial experience. It illustrates the concept of entanglement, an uncanny scientific phenomenon-defying explanation. The piece oscillates between four theories: the fluidity of time, multiverse, Copenhagen interpretation and decoherence.

Immortelle is an atmospheric and figurative work illustrating the flights and falls of psychological endurance. Featuring a cathartic flux of sonic and visual fragments, this unpredictable piece opens a door onto how a mind in internal turmoil redefines the outside world.
