On her website, she writes, “Through my research-based practice I examine navigation, exploration, perception, and the experience of being lost. I create languages to convey distance, scale, and direction, giving evidence to a process that has taken place and creating landscapes supplemented by scientific curiosity and human memory. This allows me to crystallize that which compels me to take measure, bringing close the wonder of the unknown.”
