My films are sonic and visual tapestries that track how we perceive, categorize and assign meaning in a culture of sensory overload. The videos visually render interior thought processes, using text, art history, pop culture and music as a referential landscape, shaped by digital tools. I resist being limited by the box of a video format and many of the works are conceived and executed as a more immersive experience, as large scale installations and live performance. The videos are short in length, employ quick editing and are often humorous, fusing a high and low aesthetic. There is a heightened attention to sound and text that challenges the traditional dominance of the visual in the film medium.
