Experimental videoartist, she works video as visual matter rather than objective witness. Her video work is inspired by intimate memories, ephemeral instants, like poetic bubbles in a fraction of time. Her camera work always suggest the presence of the person behind it, and the viewer is invited to look through her eyes, through her imagery. Her work is constructed in a poetic structure, where detail magnification, vivid colors, extreme slow motion and grain contibute to create a highly personnal signature. Her video installations immerse the viewer into her poetic imagery.
