Always coming from a feminist perspective, I employ video to create character studies through portraits of female performers from my immediate surroundings. I refer to the works as photo-videos-- I use rich sound and limited camera movement to induce a sense of anxiety and suspension as a means to engage the viewer in the narrative.
Structurally, the videos begin in media res and end unresolved to allow the viewer to fill in missing spaces of the narrative. I am interested in the minimally grotesque, subtle suggestions of possession, humor and repulsion, and uncanny environments.
