The works created through a process of reshooting, projecting, reprojecting and layering, blending and breaking down the imagery. Interchangeibility of both her tools and her subject tie the works together; the natural world and the body, still and moving image, the human body as both subject and canvas; nothing is set or concrete.  www.interimagineer.net
