The Enigma Room weighs truth versus reality, searching for where they intersect and diverge. Kashi uses coding to transform his archive of over four decades. This immersive experience challenges perception – the fact of the photograph versus the mystery of digital alchemy. The work weaves photos, video, and audio, transporting the viewer to discover new planes of reality through digital translation. Abstract connections link images across time and place. This dreamlike reverie explores the physical and transcendent elements of life through cycles of chaos, calm, celebration, and rebirth.
