The golden thread symbolises the things that are hidden, that could be beneficial or used to control and influence, which can sometimes restrict our overall understanding of what is happening around us.


Shadow puppets are only a part of the “setting” and the whole story, with the “Golden Thread” and the “hidden elements” echoing each other, directly controlling every movement of the characters.

Shadow puppets are like a shadow, following us to every corner of the world, our closest friend, wherever there is light, a shadow puppet is created by a shadow, with each shadow representing a life that is full of philosophy and complications. I use shadows in my work, to evoke a series of dialogue between the shadow, it’s owner and society, including what is happening in it.
