My recent video works act as ‘cinematic investigations’ into the effects of neoliberal ideals, managerial techniques, and technological developments on the human voice and speech.
Using frameworks and concepts of ‘the event’ to underpin my projects, I see my practice as ‘future-oriented’, working with methodologies prior to the event such as scenario-planning, simulation, rehearsals, and pedagogy, to forefront a politics of premeditated state and corporate actions and socio-cultural (re/un)learning. Collaboration is fundamental to my practice, recently working with local groups, actors, puppeteers, teachers, and musicians.
