Her unusual cross-disciplinary background combines a focus on moving image work, field trips, science demos, and the re-framing of landscape and its life forms in immersive live cinema and exhibition events. She particular focuses on issues of species, specimens, and alternative ways of seeing/hearing in experimental (re)animation. Recent works with a focus on archives and ecology include The Video Book of Orchids (2021), commissioned by Empire & Ecologies research network, LULL (2021), an ambisonics interactive surround sound composition commissioned by Amoenus, You Call it Sundew (2020), commissioned by Fermynwoods Contemporary Art, and All Her Beautiful Green Remains in Tears (2018), a nature documentary “hacked” by machine learning. In 2019, The Observer described her works as 'resembling a film told from the point of view of a butterfly'.
