His project, Beyond Walls, is ambitiously working to create the world’s largest human chain. His installations show human hands clasped across space. In Paris, in 2019, he painted a 2,000-foot long human chain at the foot of the Eiffel Tower.

“I like to tell myself that, like everything on earth, I will leave a mark of my passage,” he told My Modern Met. “The question is, what trace will I leave? I worked as a nurse for years, and I was in regular contact with death, suffering… you ask those kinds of questions. Then, I like to tell myself that I can make an impact without impacting nature. Ultimately, it is a message of living together and of compassion that I want to convey.”
