Slumming at the Rodeo Gardens (video work)
Narration in English, 20min film, sound design by Fabian Tombers 
As an experience of intimacy and a domestic drama, the video-work  invite the spectator by a never-ending tale to look into its own nostalgia.

Like a ritual of remembering, the viewer is drawn by the levels of abstraction of the narration and the aesthetic of the work to dig sheer into its own traumas, its own belonging, and its own stories.

Iridescence Begins, As it Were, at the Surface
Narration in English, 16min film
The narration of this video work is highly inspired and is quoting ‘Iridescence, Intimacies’ by Tavi Meraud, that appeared in the e-flux Journal #61, January 2015. The video explore shinny, blobby, 3D aesthetics and their relationship with capitalism. Looking into how brands re-appropriate such aesthetics in order to promote purity, modernity and ecology.  

How does these material-immaterial visibility-invisible notions are applying to how are we experiencing these evolving aesthetics hiding evolving politics and economic relations ? How can we use these aesthetics and the jargon of shine, wetness and liquidity to incorporate it into communities of resistance ?

Eurasia
(Questions on Happiness)
Feature-length film
by Metahaven
‘Assembling cinematic sequences shot in the Southeastern Urals and in Macedonia, archival footage and animation, Eurasia (Questions on Happiness) sets forth on a journey towards the Eurasian stepp where it meets the New Silk Road. Imagining a fractured continent in the thrall of self-learning data sites that trigger world events, the film confronts various forms of hoax, from cut and paste political doctrines to neo-classical facade architectures. Mapping ideological and political currents that are presently unraveling the European Union, Eurasia describes fake news as a man-made proxy of the indifference that an artificial intelligence may feel toward the human condition. Through modes of science fiction, documentary, and folk tale, Eurasia creates an immersion within layers of media production, wrapping facts in fictions, and fictions in facts.’
