Her work focuses on ways of transferring contemporary human emotions and feelings into visual digital culture and non-verbal codes.
Taking the former as an emotional collective entity - non-organic, bloodless, and painless - she aims to detect gaps that expose it to reality and allow for influence.

This series continue her research into the present overlaps of physical and digital realms. The exhibition explores different areas and states of these transitions, and the forms they take in individual's social and emotional being.
Among them is the topic of adolescence as a period of physical and emotional change where the notion of playfulness and naive games may turn into acts of aggression or unsolicited violence.
This aspect is elaborated through visual and conceptual clues to gaming and play, and the relations between violence and the sense of guilt, amplified by the presence of digital simulation and stimuli that have become coming-of-age issues during the past decades. Agents in the photography series – a boy, an Irish wolfhound, a webbed cluster of moth larvae – allude to various states of morphing, either as temporary states of change, or set conditions of hybridity.
Part of the objects created in collaboration with fashion designer and artist Karolina Janulevičiūtė, illustrator Rūta Vėbraitė and photographer Pavle Nikolić.
