In traditional story-telling, the story is used to explicate a series of events. But in Koans, Buddhistic verses, this idea is reversed. These short stories are surreal and often contradict themselves, meant to make the reader think about the inexplicability of life and the world.
When I started out creating these theatrical 3D-environments, I had no real explanation of why I was making them. In traditional theatre, the decor has to perform a specific function: to “set the stage” for the story being told. Mine, however, focus on materiality and mystery, and might set the stage best for the staging of Koans.
