Concerned with the history of technical images and heavily influenced by experimental cinema and media archaeology, I create films, books, and multi-media installations that engage different levels of visual and cultural recognition to question our perception of language and audio-visual experiences.

I have developed new ways of engaging with images through inter-medial procedures that question the intended purpose of the devices and focus on both the materials themselves and on the sensory experiences they can produce, often revealing artistic and conceptual relations between analog and digital images.
