Statement

My practice based-research is concerned with languages and methodologies applied in cinema, immersive environments, speculative design and new media; developing conceptual ideas of meditative devices, how systems of communication impact the evolution of our environmental, social, and political awareness. In my work I hope for an engagement where the visitor obtains spatial insight; listener and body are situated in a resonance to the environment. I apply languages found in feminist practices, a methodology to create strategies for decolonization of cognitive and somatic sensory systems. This approach is rooted in emancipatory views through spatial knowledge: physical, imagined and psychoacoustic spaces. I often work from collaborative processes to bring fields of knowledge, technics and methods into a hybrid work rooted in the etymology of kinema and topos. I am co-founder of Invisibledrum, an artist’s association investigating the correlation between technology and shamanism via animistic system of communication.

My recent works are created from a study on time and spatial perception within immersive cinema called When the Spell is Broken. The study founded in 2014 is developed from my interest in systems and ontologies within cinematic spaces. My research locates the essence of cinema elsewhere, outside of the form that is traditionally defined, investigating concepts of interior cinema and topographies of imagination, for creating spaces for ritual and purification means. In the recent years, I have developed a conceptual and methodological framework that interweaves technology, cinema and animist practices; a study on the notion of anachronism and its entanglements to light and sound; ontology and hauntology, spirit and spectre.
