Unfathomable Faces takes the window as leitmotif.
It uses the existing windows as a surface, a screen and as a means for real and mental projections, while addressing issues of function and materiality, form and metaphorical space.

While interacting with the projections, the windows become their own reflections. These reflections move with the changing light- of sunlight, city lights, or the coloured filters of sacred spaces.... They disappear into the distance, passing by, coming closer again until they return, fixed back into their own frames. A gust of wind dissolves them, a vibration makes them quiver...
