Occurrence taking place somewhere or human behaviour connected to certain space are often the starting points of her work. The media used varies between sound, objects, photographs and drawings. Recent works have been sound performances and installations searching for alternative ways to reproduce sound and in this way listen to the space. Sound performances are layered sound constructions of self-built analog synthesizers, field recordings, vocals and other instruments.
