MA work

Inspired by the phenomena of light.


My recent work uses thermochromic inks and light in an expanded idea of cinema. Inside the frame, movement in light informs time; real time and retrospective time collide the lapse of time visible in the bodies’ trace image. Rooting the viewer in the present moment, they are directed to engage on a more personal level.
