I make films and videos, considering 'the cinema' as a space of sensorial ritual and potential communion, but also possible rupture. I have a background in theater / performance and script writing. Currently I'm playing primarily with analog film, digital phone footage, archival records, and fictional writing, enmeshing the 'precious' material of film with the endless digital realm. At times, these multivocal worlds expand beyond the screen and if so they may have a performative element. Often I collaborate with fellow artists, poets, and musicians. I am currently asking questions about fluid fragmentary narratives as escape routes from existing infrastructure. I'm also thinking about ritual as a method of re-enchantment with all that (we) have been violently separated from. I am looking to the tides of the ocean, the flows of converging deltas, both tonic and toxic, as potential guides for other ways of sensing - both theoretically but also materially.
