SAUDADE: The Name of the Father (Feature Documentary 2020)
A filmmaker ferries us along a self-reflexive search for her biological roots, weaving a cinematic dreamscape of intimate storytelling.

[DE]COMPOS[ED] (Artist Book 2015, 7x7, 50 plates) Images explore the systems and boundaries between binaries (text/image, conscious/unconscious, corporeal/spiritual, material/intangible) and focus on the points at which these constructs converge, invert, subvert and decompose.
