Lockhart is known for a formal approach to film and photography that reveals the overlap and limitations of the two mediums. She focuses on the everyday with an ethnographer's eye for minutiae, often immersing herself in the communities of her subjects. The artist will make an in-person appearance to introduce her 2009 film Double Tide, a meditative portrait of a woman digging for clams.
