I work with time-based media and my interests and research range broadly from landscape studies, cartography, science & technology and sound-image mapping. My current and past research projects focus on methods using filmmaking, animation, virtual reality and cartography. I’m an architect by training, and have beenspending the last 8 years teaching a range of subjects including architecture, design, media arts, ethnography and visual and spatial analysis. I work in collaboration with scientists and researchers, using new media to un-blackbox data sets that tell stories about war, conflict and climate change. I like to pay attention to sensory impressions of data, sound, image and texture - experienced in immersion with a narrative that shows how knowledge is created in a world of incomplete information. My most recent project, conducted in conversation with archaeologists, focuses on visualizing conflict and militarization in Kandahar, Afghanistan. I am currently in conversation with glaciologists and is working on a project on the sounds of historic Antarctic ice events and am working on a film based on fieldwork on the Rhone glacier in the Swiss Alps. I am a PhD candidate in the social sciences at the University of Chicago.
I am currently an artist-in-residence at Cité Internationale des Arts, Paris and faculty and visiting researcher at Sciences Po, Paris.
