“Possible Fragments” is her first video work, a mix of theater and cinema.
Although my background is writing, I consider myself a visual director. My main goal in my work is to translate visually the concept of the chosen text, in a way that it is symbolic and form and content are intertwined. I try to mix languages in my video works, creating a piece that is not theatrical nor cinematographic, it is something else.
