This is how she describes her work:

One repetition after another.

One module after another.

A shape – a sound which continues.

My fascination with this.

Noticing the slight variation in the repetition.

An anomaly, a shadow or an imperfectness.

Precisely disturbing the monotonous balance – and infusing the works with life in return.
