Through careful social conditioning, the mind is guided to think within certain patterns. Gil Kuno tries to redirect the flow of the mind outside of the set patterns we are taught by society to construct.

Much of his work revolves around the experience of sound. Gil Kuno is based in Tokyo and Los Angeles.
