In her works she applies common everyday skills like ironing clothes for a site-specific installation to construct a space. She investigates an embodiment approach to a place. Walking creates order. Mapping a wood by walking with attached thread roll at her feet is a method by which she gains crocheted inscriptions and diagrams in a form of her foot ́s length.
