Her practice lead to various collaborations with national and international musicians and sound artists developing audio-visual performances and moving images.

Since 2004, she has participated regularly in solo and group exhibitions across Europe, North America, and New Zealand. In September 2015 her work got honored by the President of the Federal Republic of Germany. In October 2015 she received the Caspar-David-Friedrich scholarship from the Ministry of Education, Science and Culture Germany.
