Featured projects

Masquerade

Masquerade features a series of 7 large-scale black and white digital photographs inspired by and utilizing film stills from Louis Feuillade’s 1915 film series Les Vampires. The project’s conceptual intention is to reveal innovative forms of female representation within a silent-film aesthetic.

Peau d'Âne

This project is part of a body of research that focuses on relational and ubiquitous performance. Investigating historical performance-centric contexts and adapting new scenarios for wearable and sensing technologies, “Peau d’Âne” seeks to create links between the symbolic percipience of fairy tales and current technological innovation. In particular, this project explores the potential for wearables to become agents of performativity.
