Whether he is (re)working more or less identifiable forms of our control-oriented society, or subverting the cinematic techniques and conventions that shape our collective imagination, Grassos created environments combine atavistic fears, scientific evidence and ominous contemporary mythologies. His works are in ways reminiscent of the paranoid retro-futuristic prophecies of Charles Fourier two centuries ago. Light, sound, radio and electromagnetic waves, natural, paranormal and meteorological phenomena are regularly incorporated to create new sensory experiences.
