Domas creates sound installations of recognizable and already existing objects. Original functions are being ignored by choosing objects that have nothing in common at first sight. Domas creates new realities that let us question our contemporary desire to authenticity. He sees himself more as a composer then as curator: ”I connect what already exists. Here I find myself having more in common with a plumber than a painter or sculptor”
