With her work she wants to tell stories about the body, the body as an instrument, as a machine - instruments/machines as extensions of the body.

Our body as an extension of our mind by changing and improving it with our technology.

Stories about the intimate relationship between human bodies and mechanic devices, (medical) technology and industry.

How are we related to each other?

An interaction that is rapidly increasing in these days.
