Improvisation as part of giving a so-called free space or maybe 'just' suggesting it is given to her as the most important link in the practice of her art. Whether in the field of vocal improvisation, in the field of performance art or analog scan and digital glitchart in combination. Elements that are 'free falling' and organically shaped can also be found in jewelery design. To conserve the use of old silver by free-form casting, for example, or the use of recycling materials or found objects from nature.
