Yann Novak is an artist, composer, and curator based in Los Angeles. His work is guided by his interests in perception, context, movement,
and the felt presence of direct experience. Through the use of sound and light, Novak explores how these intangible materials can act as
catalysts to focus our awareness on our present location in space and time. Novak’s diverse body of works  – audiovisual installations, performances,
architectural interventions, sound diffusions, recording, and prints – ask participants to reclaim the present moment as a political act.
