Artist’s description:

When man encountered the island, he wondered where the roar of the ocean ended and the tone of the mist began. From somewhere in between, beyond his farthest plane of perception, a passerine emerged guided by a different migratory time.

As a body of work, Man from Iota uses various mediums – moving image, sound, sculpture and drawing – to engage, evolve, digress, correspond, mimic and contest itself from the desire to paint a continuously fluctuating picture of the experiential world that is its canvas.

Man from Iota investigates the correspondence of time and the instance of man’s existence in it, the desire for the unattainable freedom of flight within this instance, while being tethered to the rock of time and history, his own doing within it and his desire for quantifiable knowledge.
