Although Orilo is not a photographer per se, he uses this artform in his series Alter in which he creates life-sized figurines of himself in various poses and situations. He exhibits these photographic clones on top of trees in cities or other high-up places. These incongruous characters evoke the fragile nature of experiences we have had, but also plays on the strange feeling passers-by experience on seeing these effigies. By setting up these improbable scenes, Orilo humourously points out the banal nature of our daily behaviour.
