Her interest lies in exploring architecture in relation to the arts to infuse interactive design with original and critical ideas and practices through contemporary digital mediums. Against this background, questions of aesthetics are of particular interest – specifically new forms of representation that embrace both the production and decoding of entities within emerging symbol systems set against a wide spectrum of technology-driven processes.
