MA work

I work with narrative from different sources to study mechanisms of filmmaking and fiction and construct parallel, fictionalised tales from external and often unreliable sources of evidence. I investigate the role of narrative in everyday lives, questioning the reliability of information and suspension of disbelief, which expose playful incoherences in memory, identity and character construction.


For my current work, I visited clairvoyants and developed a narrative from their consultations.
