My media arts practice really began during the 10 years I spent as a youth worker in Toronto. It grew into a stint as a concert photographer/videographer and then merged with my research interests once I entered grad school. As a media maker, I find myself moving away from the traditional documentary film form into video and digital art that reorients our relationship to the visual representations of daily occurrences. At the moment, this is best reflected in an in-progress series I am developing called OverSight.
OverSight is a series of gifs that reference our global inundation and preoccupation with the social media police brutality video (what I refer to in my research as eLynching) and its simultaneous ability to foreground Black death while making state violence invisible and intangible.
