  1. I occasionally produce creative documentaries and visual essays. In 2007, together with Rugile Barzdziukaite, Dovydas Petravicius and Rugile Andziukeviciute I produced an award-winning short documentary “K City”. Later, I accomplished a three-channel video installation “Any-Space-Whatever”, alongside several other film and video works. Generally, in my filmmaking practices I attempt to reveal a material-discursive nature of the real that--I believe--could make any fiction non-fictional (sometimes I do that by employing an ethnographic approach). Politics of vitalism, non-human affects and instability of dominant historical narratives are the themes I have been palpating in making my films and moving-image installations.

    I am also an initiator of FLOWERS & CONCRETE, an audiovisual research initiative for critical engagement with the relationship between human and natural environments. Relying on the eco-queer aesthetics and pushing limits of ethnographic imagemaking it traces the elemental and contingent penetrating the constructed and planned as well as explores how human-made infrastructures often acquire anthropocentric forms of desire and fantasy and take on fetish-like aspects.
