My work oscillates between experimental documentary, observational filmmaking, curation and film programming. My filmmaking and research spans a variety of media, spanning 16mm and digital cinematic films, print and web-based writing and video projects. I work with ultra-processed images seeking to bring to the surface both the limitations and potential of perception, language, and cultural coding. www.obstructedvisions.com
