I make videos and installations about communication and intimacy. I am interested in inner lives, non-presence and disembodiment, perception, voyeurism, consent, intersubjectivity, narcissism, uncertainty, editing, accessorizing, acting, power, psychoanalysis, growing up, (lack of) cohesion, (lack of) stillness, how technology mediates human interaction, the etymological connection between skin and screen, the relationship between coding and weaving, language, narratives of desire and distance, windows, beds, rain falling on water, provisional endings,
