In my interdisciplinary practice I use video, sound and photography. Starting with the assertion that memory is political, my work often focuses on the fraught binary of remembering and forgetting. My projects begin with questions provoked by archival documents, objects, or facts, and their social existence and persistence as memory or material. Engaging in these materials, my work considers structures of time through narratives, both individual and collective, and transnational histories. In representing temporal structures, I have been thinking about the ways in which video, sound, and photographs mark and map space – a contingent act that calls attention to the very nature of memory itself. As an artist working in digital video, I have also been thinking about the shift in cinematography in regards to light. The word “cinematography” combines the Greek word kinema (motion) with graphé (drawing); central to this practice is this concept of drawing or writing with light. I’m interesting in exploring the boundaries of cinematography in relationship to both film and the digital medium around this concept of writing with light.
