Found footage from educational films is sewn together with melted down pharmaceuticals affixed directly to the film, and thus forms a concentrated fusion of pulsating electronic sounds and acoustic multi-tonal bass clarinet.

Jennifer Reeves' experimental films push the boundaries of film through film stock "mis-use" and direct-on-film techniques. In her work, she has consistently explored themes of memory, mental health, feminism, sexuality and politics.
