Research Interests

My practice as an archivist and a media artist drives my research. In media art, I focus on obsolete media like 8mm film and, crucially, the situation in which we experience it. In archives, I focus on how government and community records are selected. Archives and media art come together in my work re-enacting media performances from the 1970s.

Recent research explores the following ideas:
- both embodiment and documentation play a role in keeping heritage that doesn’t digitise well. Passing on in person and recordings are both needed.
- use can strengthen ephemeral heritage. Creative reformatting through re-enactment and translation offers potential to both share and preserve some forms of heritage.
- all things are in contact so how do we determine where the heritage item ends in order to archive it?
