Koan Theatre

Koan Theatre

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 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, thus carry no real explanation.
