Her art practice draws on an exploration of the interface between science and art, perception and cognition, fact and fiction. Through a plural-disciplinary practice including drawing, early techniques of photography, installation and new media art, her work stems from a fascination of the history of ideas: the attempts of our civilisations to understand the mystery of the living; endow our existence with a meaning and elaborate a comprehensive view of the universe.
 
Exploring techniques of the spectator’s participation, she questions the influence of a narrative, material and embodied experience when encountering an object of knowledge and explores the ways through which the elements and entities that stand beyond direct observations are understood, perceived, imagined and visualised. She focuses her research on elements that lie below ground, stand at the confinement of space or in the invisible realms that surround us. To this end, she collaborates with scientists in the fields of physics, astrophysics or engineering in both collaborative and consultative roles. She also engages in collaboration with composers, writers and artists, including the international art collective, Art in Touch, and the Royal Opera of Wallonia in Belgium.
