20+ years of creative leadership with expertise in clear, impactful and original visual thinking.

An innovative mind for concepts, prototypes, editorial workflows, talent recruitment, visual research and curation, and scalable solutions from lens to screen.
“I believe in stories deployed in collaboration, in interdisciplinary story forms across disciplines and screens, with multiple entry points. They are the future of storytelling. In these experiences, artists and audience are wrapped in ephemeral realities in which people can play an active role.This is already central in progressive live arts and VR experiences. And for such theatrical productions or scénographies in French to deploy with vision and quality, cultural authorship requires a lab to experiment with multiple projections, soundscapes, large-scale print material, untested VR experiences, and bespoke workshops with their chosen set design.”

A passionate iconoclast in visual storytelling, CB stands for creative activism and breaking down barriers separating the artistic, anthropological and academic disciplines to uncover new ways of experiencing visual arts. She operates from the floatinglab.org in Hackney; an intimate setting to screenplay, brainstorm and rehearse. There she aims to conduct curated experiences where author, audience and artwork converge in uniquely shared moments.

Her Manifesto We Own the Night written for the International Center of Photography in 2018, called for a new way of being immersed in photography paired with spoken words, installations, performances and soundscapes. It eschews the traditional gallery in favour of stages where artwork can be passed from hand to hand, projected onto walls and discussed in what she coined as #criticaljamming conversations that bring together artists, thinkers and experts to riff on a central theme.

CB designs invisible architecture between people, spaces, and stories. For her, reality is the new fiction; an arresting twinning of facts and metaphors.

Dandy Vagabonds was first founded in 2007 in New York as a one-[wo]man company. The name is a tribute to visual authors investing the real through fieldwork, research, observation and critical thinking.
