The videos, linked below, are visual essays of my on-going critical study of our world of mediated moving-images.  Each is shaped by several methodological agendas:

bricolage

reflexivity

performance

surrealism

ethnography

civic media

    feminism

journalism

position

storytelling

transgression

democracy

ambiguity

objectivity

meaning

montage

My intention is four-fold:

- to unveil media making language and technique 

for a critically informed  public

- to challenge media making power

through access and production

- to ‘inoculate’ against insidious media making persuasion 

by building media literacy skills

- to invigorate civic participation in critical media making
