She implements technology and narration to tell the tale quickly and intuitively. She treats every interactive installation individually. She writes scenarios, develops functional and communicative solutions, design graphics and chooses technologies, so that every story is told in an appropriate way. Highly interactive media solutions allow people to experience stories vividly, to grasp interesting content and to share their discoveries with others. She believes that interaction with the visual and performing arts is important in one’s life and can change the way of how people experience the world. That is why the story always comes first.”

About her Ph.D project: I am interested in the subject of widely common images that exist in public space, their impact on shaping the identity of the contemporary human. Images being the expression of current pop culture, which marginalized high culture as defined. My work is the representation of the query about the impact of these images on the society. It’s an analysis and observation of a visual language code created by the advertising world.
