Working predominantly with moving image and installation, my work confronts the construction of documentary forms and storytelling. By experiencing and recording cultural and socio-economic conditions, in which I am often a tourist or external observer, I explore temporality and realism. My work addresses the political, draws on the poetic and brings forth a discussion between labor, site and identity. Through the use of self-reflexive narratives and a process of documenting and reconstructing, my projects often comment on that which cannot be seen or captured. Ambition and failure are common narratives, as are notions of pretense and the act of embellishment.
