Artist Statement

I am an experimental filmmaker inspired by the goals and methods of political modernism, feminist filmmaking of the 1970s and the cinematic avant-garde. Still entranced by the purportedly obsolete medium of small-gauge film and "amateur," analog filmmaking technology, I revise, expand and (sometimes) undermine the meaning of already existing stories and images. Simultaneously dense and austere, my films explore the possibility of representing female subjectivity in a medium whose formal conventions have been defined by heterosexual male desire; problems of knowing and the dilemma, melancholy and exhilarating devastation of being on the margins.
