Artist Statement

I use film as a social practice. Through my work, I aim to draw attention to hidden oppressive constructs rigorously at work in our society. I am fascinated by the nexus that experimental and immersive film can provide. Foremost, however, I hope to continue the tradition of avant-garde and experimental social practice cinema.
