ABOUT

STILL

MOVING

Caroline is a multi-modal storyteller working with video, pictures, found footage, text, spoken word, cinemagraphs, and sound.  She is interested in the visual narrative in its many forms, particularly in what Malcolm Gladwell calls a “thin-sliced instance,” that brief flash that tells you all you need to know.
