The practice constructs environments that play with spatial and sensorial experience, often of a marginal and peripheral nature. These environments evolve through the curious use of materials, assemblies and methods, while extending across various scales, locations and types.     

The work has been shown at the Hordaland Kunstsenter in Bergen Norway, the National Museum of Contemporary Art in Bucharest, Romania and at the Architekturzentrum Wien as part of the Vienna Biennale.
