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.
From 2021 Practice-based PhD at the Visible Institute, Kingston School of Art.
