Ectoplasmic marks a new direction - combining the video autoportraits that have been the most consistent aspect of her art practice to date, with traditional animation in brief loops that attempt to transcend 'time' both in format and content.

Inspired in part by the resurgence of the animated gif in online culture, the concise video loops the artist has been experimenting with convert one small moment or gesture into an eternity, while each hand-painted frame grounds their initial 'quip-ness' in the weightlabour.

The 'ectoplasm' - simultaneously supernature and superpower - combines with an aesthetic that confuses material origin and does so with the intention of carrying myimage into a realm that operates outside of and amongst time.
