On Ways To Disappear looks into the use of
optical instruments as portals into new ‘realities’

seemingly at arms’ reach yet out of their control.
Non-existent personages from a present future
accompany you, while binaural sound recordings
reinvent the soundtrack of everything, perhaps even
your own voice.
