"I started doing the projections in 1996, and have been working on those since. Xenon is a word that describes what used to be in the lamps of the projectors. I’ve clung to it because I just like the word. The projectors are exceptionally powerful and, because they’re so bright, they let me throw text on mountains and rivers and on giant buildings."
