User Bio

I'm from Nürnberg, Germany, and live in the Northwest of Ireland.
My creative work involves both image-making (mostly film & some photography) & writing (short stories).

My visual work has been shown as part of film festivals (Frameline San Francisco; Belfast Photo Festival; Galway Film Fleadh; Corona Cork Film Festival; Montecatini Mostra Internazionale Del Cortometraggio, Italy; Merlinka Film Festival, Belgrade, Serbia; Davis Feminist Film Festival, California; Cinesonika - Celebrating the Soundtrack & others), solo & group exhibitions (Artlink, Fort Dunree, Inishowen; Void, Derry; Context Gallery, Derry; Catalyst Arts, Belfast & others) & academic conferences (Journal of Media Practice Symposium, Bristol; ISEA Inter-Society for the Electronic Arts, Belfast; SIEF Congress, Derry & others).

My writing has been published in English & German in numerous anthologies & magazines (e.g. The Stinging Fly, Cuirt Journal, West 47, Macondo - Die Lust am Lesen, LiMa - das Literaturmagazin & others)

I have lectured part-time in the School of Art & Design at University of Ulster since 2001 and have been a member of the curatorial board at VOID, Derry since 2009, where I curated exhibitions by Anna Konik, Margaret Salmon, Grace Schwindt & Christian Jankowski. I also work with children, designing & facilitating workshops in lens-based media and story-telling.

In 2010, I completed a PhD with Visual Practice which examined the "Visibilities of Childhood in Moving Image", emphasising children's agency and child-adult connectedness. The project combined art-based methods with a theoretical framework drawing on discourse from cultural geography, visual anthropology & sociology. It also included three case studies of film artists Eija-Liisa Ahtila, Miranda July and Jane Campion.
