I am generally interested in performance as the intersection of body, technologies, and aesthetics in film history, critical theory, and philosophy, with a special historical obsession with the 1920s and 1930s as the interwar era and transition from silent to sound cinema. I am also interested in post-war art cinema, especially Tsai Ming-liang. Plastic is another whimsical and versatile concept (and material) that I would like to toy with.
