In films, multimedia works, and photographs, Cao Guimarães evocatively captures everyday events and quiet actions in urban and rural settings. He emphasizes the interplay between sounds and images, demanding that his audience listen to and view his films with equal concentration. “Image and audio are like flour and eggs for the cake batter that goes in the oven,” he says. “Each work has a measure in which mystery is fermented.” His works are poetic interventions into human experience, including video explorations of billowing tarps, marching ants, and soap bubbles.
