Nature of the Hunt
Nature of the Hunt is a project by Auto Italia in collaboration with Harman Bains, considering what is at stake in our contemporary desire to re-imagine folkloric and historic modes of violence and resistance. Explored through a disembodied survey of twentieth-century exploitation and body horror cinema, this project asks how the biological danger associated with the nature of the female in these materials might be claimed and shaped. It enables us to explore on new terms these female subjects historically considered dangerous to society.

Metahaven: Information Skies
Metahaven’s 2016 film project Information Skies weaves new realities, informed by VR. Through a dramatisation of this experiential technology, using live footage and animation, concepts of authenticity and lived experience are positioned as fictional provocations.
