Ruth Waters works with film, sound, animation, text and installation. Her practice explores the ways late capitalist networked society impacts both our levels of anxiety and our ability to imagine an alternative. She conducts extensive research for her projects, often online, where genres, time zones, generations, political struggles and reality TV exist simultaneously. Taking advantage of this open source material and its malleability; writing scripts and producing films which combine found footage with acted scenes. Her work offers critique of the murky emerging uncertainties of our digital era using dark humour and satire.
