Statement

My work explores the use of narrative and avatars within filmmaking. It focuses on the ‘masquerade’ of identify, how we project an image of ourselves and how others perceive us. Initially, I develop scripts that take inspiration from a variety of sources: personal first hand experiences, interviews and journalism sourced from digital media. The scripts become voiced through avatars that employ puppetry, costume and states of consciousness. Fundamental to my work is the issue of an evolving Queer identity and its cultural use of imagery as representation within contemporary digital culture.
