Who Am I?
I make experimental films and other media inspired by haptic visuality, movement, and somatic sensations. I am interested in where body, mind, and visuality converge.
I work primarily in Super 8mm film, stop motion animation, and sculptural installation using repurposed fabric. I am intrigued by the physicality of fabric and the film strip to allow me to play with texture and hapticity. These tactile elements can be utilized and brought to life on another level with stop motion animation, creating a convergence of forced (man-made) and natural movement. I invite the viewer to engage with my work in a variety of levels, using their body, breath, memory, and sight.
I have a BA from Hampshire College in experimental filmmaking, and Somatics, specializing in Dance Movement Therapy. I aim to combine these studies by capturing the feeling and therapeutic aspects of dance and movement explorations through filmmaking and installation. I want to allow others who may not be able to fully access their own physical movement, to access it through exercising kinesthetic empathy while watching my films and stepping inside the worlds I create.
I am always interested in collaboration, and gaining opportunities to make other’s visions come to life. I would love to work with you!
