I am a video artist working with documentary, installation and video art.

I produce ethnographic works constituted through visual, acoustic, performative, and other forms of experience-based knowledge that escape the realm of traditional ethnography, resulting from long-term investigations and interventions on landscape and the social relations and tensions unfolding on site.

My work intersects community-based research with site-specific practices, exploring the possibilities laying dormant between ethnographic research, academic writing and artistic practice.

Founder of POLLO, a moving image house based in Montreal, Canada.
Currently, a Faculty of Fine Arts Fellow in the Humanities Doctoral Program in the Centre for Interdisciplinary Studies in Society and Culture at Concordia University.
