She seeks to highlight moments from history, looking in the past for a potentiality, which represents an opening and a questioning.
The various events or happenings have included walks and cycles with text orated by actors or the viewer. She has approached themes such as socio-urban and socio-economic history, psychogeography, voyeurism, exhibitionism, intimacy, seduction, loss and belonging, and being lost.
