She has produced well over 200 videos to date, herself, dozens of which have been published in online journals alongside her written reflections on these forms and their emergent role in film and media studies, especially in relation to theories of film spectatorship, material thinking, and psychoanalytic object relations. A longstanding practitioner as well as theorist in the field, her videos have screened at film festivals and film museums around the world.
