Composed of “oddly satisfying” internet videos stripped of their context and sounds broken down into tiny loops, One Thousand and One Attempts to Be an Ocean aims to transform information into energy.
An archaeologist is sent to excavate the remains of a bog body, an Iron Age corpse naturally preserved in Ireland’s peat bog lands. When the corpse comes back to life, the archaeologist will have to listen to what he has to say. Either he confronts the impending storm of Climate Change or he faces an inevitable extinction.
Widow’s End aims to create a non-linear visual narrative free of singular intent – inviting viewers to make intuitive connections between personal history, images, and ideas. In it, a woman finds herself enveloped in a swath of black fabric – a collision between her inner and her outer reality that investigates femaly agency in the wake of loss.
A humble servant of surveillance obediently monitors the activity of a prison enclosure. Track the path and life lessons of a young drone fumbling to do right by her lineage.
Lap Dogs is a reimagining of Fyodor Dostoyevsky's vision of Russian nihilism through fragments from his novel "Demons" and scenes from Perestroika cinema, depicting physical and political apathy in domestic settings.

Instead, they tend to dig deeper to capture a fragment of truth and personal expression.
