Capturing the Evasive
Media artist Daniel Kojta works with natural elements of the environment. Large granite boulders, mist floating through a bus stop, or the side of a moving truck, all play host to the projection of minimalist light forms presented on spontaneous screens that avoid restrictive ratios of 4 x 3, etc. The projections illuminate and enhance a non linear narrative with the background on which the light forms lay. The works are further enhanced by the spontaneous nature of the natural environment and our inability to control any aspects of the subjects approached
These sites are enhanced by audio compositions from local found sounds. Daniel engages with his subjects from a distance, documenting the spontaneous consequences of unaware actions and reactions.
