Artist Statement

Off Beat is the seed of a new documentary film project investigating the murder of over 80 queer people who were pushed to their death from the Bondi cliffs in Australia. The book probes the limits of the visual regimes that dominate contemporary forensic practice in search of a cinematic grammar capable of new modes of investigation and documentation.
