Biography

I am an artist and filmmaker interested in the politics of listening in relation to social and spatial narratives. I often work with other artists and activists, taking on the roles of researcher, sound recordist, editor and performer. I approach listening as both an inward experience shaped by gender, ethnicity, technology and time; and as an outward gesture interested in the expansive and often unwieldy systems and environments within which we arrange our lives. In contexts where visually oriented technologies and the isolations of attention economies grow ever tighter, my work listens for openings, which may be unstable or invisible, that offer possibilities to escape structures of containment and control.

I studied film and video at Srishti School of Art, Design and Technology, Bangalore, India (2008-2012). Recent group exhibitions include shows at Los Angeles Asian Pacific Film Festival, Edinburgh Festival of Art, ONCA Centre for Arts and Ecology, Kunsthaus Langenthal, Khoj International Artists' Association, and Dharamshala International Film Festival.
