Sapphire is an artist researcher working primarily in film, She creates collaged compositions from elements of footage, archive and video snapshots, often remixed and performed live. She makes films using experimental techniques, playing with textures and surface and using unusual patterns with light, fragments of archive and found footage with more traditional filmed elements to create abstract animations that have a physically tangible, textural quality. This layered style creates work that has a physically tangible, textural quality and evokes dream narratives, creating concurrent motifs, shifting patterns and layers of consciousness. With a background studying film and visual anthropology her work investigates ideas of place, culture and memory. This might take the form of installations, documentaries, commissions, workshops or live events. She is interested in engaging with overlooked, ignored or forgotten spaces, often within a challenging community context. She grew up in Milton Keynes and currently lives in Folkestone.
