I am a new-media artist based in Melbourne. My work focuses on the genre of self-portraiture in photography and video to investigate the relationship of women’s embodiment through the lens used in gendered advertising. I interrogate the impact social media platforms such as Instagram have on women and their ability to visualise and share images of themselves. Using a combination of video, still photography and electro-bricolage, my work highlights the oppressive nature of the platform and the damages inherent in fitness and celebrity culture. It re-assembles a critique that explores the un-realistic level of correction needed to present an acceptable portrait of oneself. I recieved my doctorate in 2023 and am currently a lecturer at RMIT University.
