Hunter is part of a series of works that use archetypal icons of popular culture. A metal cast replica of the mask of a "false angry god" from John Boorman's 1974 film "Zardoz," starring Sean Connery, is part of several installations and video works. Most of these works revolve around the idea and background of masks in ritual practices from the early memetic phase of human evolution (possibly before the development of language) to the still surprisingly high effectiveness of symbolic character stylizations in mainstream films.
