Moving through different languages and genres
she uses the observation as a study of phenomena and beyond.
She deals with accurate wording and reactions
as existential humorous poetry, considering that:
aesthetics are an ethical statement which manifests our presence.
Performative, writing and exhibition space
are areas of great consistency and high risk
in the terms of reality and absurdity,
simplicity and precision, tenderness and bravery.
Art is no longer interested in a story but in the acceleration of thought.
