Coming from a commercial photography and fine art studio background I enjoy the fantasy world that being created in the advertising world and the same time I found it’s hard to escape from what’s actually happening around the world. I’m interested in exploring possibilities and boundaries of non-fiction narrative. The only truth I believe is that truth is subjective. In my work, I want to enhance the subjectivity of “the truth” by add performance and rendered elements. From formal aspect, I am interested in working mix-media, with physical object and possibly projection. Also, the idea of unfolding space is important to me, such as working with mirrors, reflections, multiple screens and re-documenting installations. Topic wise, I’m interested in population, censorship and meaning behind temporary status.

Pittsburg Trilogy(1983) was shot on super 8 sound which gives it a fragmented nature that highlights the marginal quality of this film. The filmmaker has wide arranged work and often place herself in the film purposely and use medium as a political act of refusal.
