Bio

I am a filmmaker and researcher currently focussed on the intersections between vision, political imaginaries, speculation and nonhuman worlds. My work centres on how images – still, moving, and in-between – might form the basis on which new kinds of thought can develop. My interests include postcolonialism, network theory, ecology and animals. I work with lens-based technology, remote sensing, coding, textiles, the written word, 3D models and machine learning to consider the range, reality and exigencies of images in the construction of the contemporary moment.
