Fabrizio Chiesa is a film maker, writer and photographer. He is Swiss and lives in New York. “The Witness” is his first video installation, and is inspired by his own experience as a Zen practitioner. The meditator in the film, Dario Dosshin Girolami, a Soto Zen monk, is his teacher. Still on the subject of “the inner journey”, Fabrizio Chiesa is now working on a 12 screen video installation and a series of photographs inspired by Carl Jung’s study on trot cards. This new project should be completed by the end of 2006.
