About works / performance
My work subverts traditional environmental practice. Instead, it draws parallels between familiar human experiences, the experience of the ecological crisis, and our existence within our fragile web of life by involving nonhuman nature directly in the moving image process. This tactile filmmaking approach reflects my desire for direct ecological experience that I find environmental film lacks, whilst operating on a regenerative ethic of sustainable practice.

Conceptually, I am motivated by how our relationship to nonhuman nature is informed by fundamental belief systems - and how these might be shaped in view of an ecocentric future.
