Lay of the Land (and other such myths) (2016/17) visualises the relationship between the deserts of California and gendered representation, as video, photography, sound, sculpture and performance are employed to reclaim geographical sites used as Hollywood film locations. In this installation, reductive replicas of boulders forefront psychedelic vistas reminiscent of film sets, and digitally reconfigured female bodies float across screens in a way that deconstructs and calls into question their culturally constructed identity.
