LENGTH, 2016
16mm Film / HD, 8min.

the work examines the length of a thought, the length of a moment. Through repetition and rhythm, the piece builds a sense of a narrative, distance and closeness at the same time. We are looking at a figure in an urban landscape, soon to be dislocated. The Gaze abandons and re-draws the images. Perception grapples with distances; between the figure and its landscape, between the viewer and the piece itself.

EMBARKATION, 2011
16mm Film/HD, 7min 30s.

Embarkation is a film that is framed like a photograph. Starting from details on the ground, through movement of repetition it builds up into a single image, like a photograph that unveils the countless images it holds inside. With simultaneous presence and absence, the work explores the relationship between still and moving image.
