is a work in progress. To date it consists of 15 images, including DEATH , The WHEEL , The FOOL , The Magician, The High Priestess , Lovers , The Sage, The Sacrifice, PAN , The TOWER , The STAR , The Moon, The SUN , Resurrection and The World.The series was first presented in 1996 under the thesis title, Imaginary Homelands, at York University in Toronto. The name of the project was later changed to "Schattenspiel", more in keeping with the author's original direction. The working title was "The Book of Mortgoth", which was unacceptable to the thesis committee. The MFA thesis was a MULTIMEDIA INSTALLATION incorporating digital imagery, projections, found objects and a text relating 9 dreams, which occurred at the time of the project's inception and provide a key to the mythological content of the images. An original soundtrack was created for the piece by the Swiss composer, musician and performance artist, Longo Hai.
