SEX WORK SPOKEN (2019)

A contributor-led short documentary that aims to tackle the stereotypes of sex workers presented to us in the mainstream media by giving a voice to a marginalised community.

The film presents a spectrum of subjects, discussing immigration, sexuality, media representation and societal abjection. It has an overall ethos of highlighting the progressive action which first and foremost should be taken to push for safety, security and decriminalisation.

Digital Communities - The Greater London Authority

Finding your place in the hustle and bustle of a city the size of London can be a challenge. Focussing on the WhatsApp skateboarding group ‘Siblings’, it tells the story of how LQGTQIA+, people of colour, womxn, trans and non-binary people have created an inclusive safe space.

It explores how social media groups and digital communication platforms bridge the gaps between people and act as a stepping stone to real life interactions and relationships.

This project was commissioned by Greater London Authority in collaboration with the pop-up sound installation 'The Conversation Booth". My visuals aimed to interpret the research projects sonic archive.
