Her work has been shown internationally at film festivals and galleries including the New York Film Festival, the London Film Festival, Rotterdam International Film Festival,Edinburgh Film Festival, Serpentine Gallery, the Whitechapel Gallery and at the Centre of Contemporary Culture Barcelona.

In my work I have been interested in thinking through film. The possibility of an opening up of perception through a rendering of the known as unknown through altering the observational ‘position’ of an audience. The isolation of objects in order to make them strange, making their context unknown in order to ‘see’ them. The apparent displacement of objects through that which Zizek defines as a Parallax view.


I am a non-binary artist, filmmaker and writer based in London, UK. My work explores the politics of encounters, addressing power and devoted to histories of non-human representation. In 2016, I founded the moving image research & screening platform Synthetic Ecology. In 2017, I was an Associate Artist at Open School East. In 2018 I began studying an MA in Contemporary Art Practice: Moving Image at the Royal College of Art.

My projects have been shown internationally in film festivals and galleries including Flat Time House - London (2018), ODD - Romania (2018), Guest Projects - London (2017), Alchemy Film Festival - Scotland (2017), Mount Florida Screenings - Scotland (2017) & Cinecity - Brighton (2016). I am also an associate for the studio programme Conditions at 89 Gloucester Road - Croydon (2019).

Abstract Phone Filmmaking Workshop - The Movie

Thanks to all the young people that took part in the workshop last night at Pie Factory Ramsgate and of course Louise Webb who ran a really fun session. Here's a short film of the editing section of the workshop that the children produced from a snippet of Louise's film footage of a bus journey. I'll hope you'll agree they are some very talented young people who mostly had never used Premiere Pro before and completed this in about 20 minutes.  Well done Evie, Stuart and Ruby.
