My themes are memory, trauma and the interior and exterior world and how they overlap. The family’s ability to change to survive, or resist and collapse.
I use the collective consciousness of found footage and create a visual collage using family home movies and ‘amateur’ observations. Often, I mix a voice-over soundtrack of fictional anecdotes with the historical, to re-create my personal world. When I decide to narrate in my own voice, it is a composite character; it’s me but different versions of myself. It is more of a performance, than a narration.
