The BFI's national film archive provides the primary context for The film document and its veracity. A practice-based and written analysis, this artist-filmmaking research project engages with and questions the existing language, grammar and truth-making of archival films.

I am embarking on this PhD project from an existing practice as an independent artist and artist filmmaker. I have worked with 'front-end' analogue mediums (from drawing to printmaking, photography to film) that intersect digital processes and intuitive gestures - such as creative writing, translation, and haptic relations around lens based media. I graduated from the Royal College of Art, London (Masters in Printmaking, 2011), and Wimbledon School of Art, London (BA Fine Art Painting, 2005). My work has been shown widely in gallery installations and screenings, in the UK as well as internationally. I have presented and tutored as a Fine Art visiting lecturer (2012-17), and taught numerous filmmaking workshops balanced on practical and theoretical principles for students (BA to MA, to public) at Newcastle University (Newcastle-upon-Tyne), Chelsea College of Arts (UAL London), Ruskin School of Fine Art and Drawing (Oxford), Grand Union (Birmingham), among others.
