Her practice concerns the development of new strategies to present narrative through video, sound and projective environments. Her’s is a contemplative video practice that encompasses the minimalist, observational art of slow cinema, a genre of film-making that emphasizes long takes with little or no narrative.These films establish an evocative register that connects the viewer with the saliences of a memorialised past and a memorialised landscape.
