His work across media incorporates video art, sound art, trash art/painting, writing, photography, and satire to explore what he theorizes as a non-beginning nor non-ending to the human mind. In his work, Savreux often utilizes arcane and esoteric intellectual references drawn from psychoanalysis, psychiatry, social theory, philosophy, language, history, and mythology to thread a needle between the intellectually probing and the hysterically funny. Savreux is currently affiliated as a protege/student, designer, and sound engineer at the Conservatory, Theatre Department at the University of Missouri-Kansas City.
