I study documentation cultures. Extensive fieldwork has been conducted in Northern Australia, especially with Yolngu people in Arnhem Land.
My work involves the publication of a wide variety of cultural material, including ethnographic films, interactive installations, music anthologies, performance recordings, radio documentaries, conference sessions and written articles. Current projects include: Cross-Cultural Documentary practices in Arnhem Land between 1935-2015, and a multisited ethnography of persistent documentary practices maintained by the conservation field. My research areas are: Documentation Studies, Media theory, Ethnography Methods, Cultural Anthropology, Digital Heritage.
