One foot in environment art the other in new technology, two classically trained painters, both with a history working with autism and an affinity with indigenous landscapes, fuse technology with the organic in their performative video installations. They create hybrids out of the natural with the virtual, analogue with digital, static with motion, material with ephemeral.  Video mapping, new inventive electronic tools, microscopes, surveillance cameras and computers  are used to project moving images onto installations of organic, natural fibers and recycled materials.  Earthwork artists such as Andy Goldsworthy and James Turrell as well as contemporaries:  Judy Pfaff, Diane Thater, Lygia Clark, Helio Oiticica  reference their work.

Peripatetic Eng brings her interest in nomadic cultures, time-based arts, sociology and quantum physics. Hemon is inspired by indigenous patterns, anthropology, celestial objects and residual debris.  During a performance which can last anywhere from 1 to 6 hours, the two gradually react to each other’s changes in light, form, color and gesture. Eng superimposes, captures and plays cinema as Hemon gathers, recycles and sculpts environments. Together they photosynethsize their built environments.

Eng has been experimenting with video in the form of installation and performance since 1994  in New York City. Hemon has been prolifically creating site specific installations made of bamboo, sand, volcanic ash and recycled materials for the last 25 years internationally. They began working together in 2010 when they met in Paris after a discussion on the transformation of micro into macro as a ritual act.
