Anderson is a detective. A sound and visual artist who uses her own voice combined with electronic musical composition, dreamlike film sequences and photographic montage to investigate the psychological aspects of people in peril, particularly women. Anderson creates studies in female desire, sacrifice, betrayal, theft, grief, trauma and ultimately love, death and rebirth by taking on the guise of women in trouble. From vengeful film noir heroine to abandoned astronaut wife, dark anti pop star to ghosts trapped in hotel rooms. Telling stories and singing songs with a certain guile and dark cartoon humour immersed in layered visuals stacked between outer space and the darkest depths of the city. Gothic noir for hard boiled romantics. Sesame Street for grown ups.
