Film-maker, Lecturer / academic, Teacher

I make films, objects, installations. I use these tools to pick away at our vulnerability, the cracks beneath the wall paper, the unspoken phrases, the unmentioned incidents that threaten to resurface. Installations  often appear as a fractured aftermath, objects mutated and altered by our interactions, sharing the stage in silent witness. In film, the camera exposes momentary narratives, uncomfortable histories and fragile exchanges. Identity shifts in an on and offline world, as the framework which once formed the scaffolding for our social interactions is dismantled and rebuilt in constantly mutating form. Mine is often the position of the voyeur, the gaze of the outsider looking in.
