The focus of her research is the phenomenology of time and space, both natural and virtual. She's interested in the relativity and temporariness that these categories wield on the human sphere. She creates her works by experimenting with different types of media like photography and videography, using different programs and technical resources, or by creating and transforming different materials, from natural fibres to photosensitive pigments, creating sculptures and installations of ephemeral nature, characterized by constantly changing shapes. The theoretical corpus of reference blends relativistic theories and subjective experience. Therefore, her work displays itself in an eternal and transitory present. In the continuous alteration, which is a consequence of the employed materials, and in the quick change of the vision of the world itself, she invites the viewer to take notice of the residual traces that the fragility of the work highlights. At the moment, she attends the last year of specialization in Painting at Academy of Fine Art of Lecce.
