My work is situated in the shared space that has opened up between art and anthropology. I am equally interested in ethnography as a form of engagement with social worlds and in the practices of video art as explorations of perception. Thus, I combine ethnographic theories and fieldwork methodologies with the representational strategies of contemporary film and video art to arrive at alternative modes of research, creation and exhibition. I work at the crossroads of theory and practice, both theoretically engaging with the politics of visual discourse and using moving imagery to produce cinematic essays that put forth their argument by visual means.
