Roman Štětina has studied at the Faculty of Art and Design of the University of West Bohemia in Pilsen and at the Academy of Visual Arts in Prague. He is one of the few Czech artists to deal with sound, which only seems to correlate with art in a mediated way at first glance. However, that is the point of his works; human imagination depends on the accord of all senses which may be hard to separate. In his cleverly constructed installations (composed of videos, objects and sounds), the artist shows how our sensory experience can confuse the impression of what we really see.
