    My film work documents events in which I collaborate with people and institutions such as interpreters at the European Commission and a newsroom picture editor at the BBC. The focus of my work, intentionally positioned at the boundaries of art, documentary and media, is a critical engagement with televisual forms.
    My work has been shown internationally in group- and solo exhibitions, as well as in film festivals including: New Contemporaries (UK), East International (UK), the Short Film Festival of Oberhausen (D), and Kunstverein Bielefeld (D).
