Untitled Sequence (2017) explores the material processes of filmmaking, such as visual narration, cinematography, soundtrack and editing from the perspective of a young female artist. This film also engages with contemporary issues of identity and allegories of artistic creation by drawing upon and reconsidering the history of cinema – particularly the visual dreamscapes of Jean Cocteau and Maya Deren, Nobuhiko Obayashi's editing processes and Lee Miller’s embodiment of both the artist and artist’s muse by working both in front of and behind the camera.
