In her recent body of work, she has been working on the creation of interactive pieces and light sculptures, like Error and Frame of Reference, with which she received the "Art Collector" prize in November 2019 in Paris.
Over the past years she started a series of multidisciplinary works that gravitate around the impact of connected devices and surveillance; the installation In between, you, the series of prints and in-situ installation called Reloading the real and the video and web-based piece called Confinement.lands, inspired by the last social-economic development led by the pandemic.
Her artworks were exhibited at cultural institutes, galleries, and cultural events such as Stereolux (Nantes), Goethe-Institut (Montréal), B39 space (Seoul), Biennale Chroniques (Marseille), Centre Wallonie-Bruxelles (Paris), Phi Center and MUTEK (Montréal).
