In her work she focuses on the union of diverse media, which is the interface between textile, auditory and spatial design. The connection between body, space and sound is the essential starting point of her artistic work. The relation between visual-tactile and auditory experiences is at the same time the foundation for her work in artistic research. Thus, the combination of smart textiles, sound and performance art in spatial design is the central object of investigation for her intended doctorate.
