The "Live-Die-Repeat" project aims to explore the new SMI campus and its surroundings through the lens of change, rebirth and memory. The project will reflect on the space's agricultural history using natural systems and organic and ephemeral media and actively use time as a medium to explore its impact on the creation and evolution of a living space. It will examine the cultural practices and evolution of the space, acknowledging that change can lead to loss but also leaves behind traces and memories embedded in the soil. The goal is to explore how the new MAHE campus location has transformed and will continue to evolve over time.

He has experience in performing as a dancer and member of a theatre group, conducting theatre workshops, and working with child psychologists to develop movement workshops for children with special needs.
