A Nymph tries to communicate with a logger who cannot see her. Inspired by the myth of Eco and Narcissus, Maybe Nymph uses the Brazilian Modernist concept of 'Antropofagia' to address an unequal relationship in different levels; woman/man, colonised/coloniser, oppressed/oppressor. Set in a forest, texts and other interferences disorientate the diegetic time of the film, and bring these characters to a contemporary discussion.

Read Me focuses on the authority of the written word on screen. Moving image is an arena of power for written text. Letters create meaning beyond the structure of the screen, and even an untranslated text remains a concept of knowledge within this space.
Palavras Acima de Tudo/ Words Above All
The project Face in the Hole aims to dissociate political discourse from political image through the dismemberment of the word. The moving image work “Palavras Acima de Tudo” registers a Brazilian politician’s discourse throughout the years, and a 2-meter-tall piece with the words translated to English is placed in a square in London.
