The Project ‘The Snow Show’ is a extension of my work into the realm of VR and digital art experiences and recreates my ephemeral pieces of snow and ice into permanent sculpture experiences in the metaverse in form of #nft’s. Its a future preperation for the time without snow.

Her artistic work practice extends across a range of disciplines and is represented in public and private collections around the world. She has led interdisciplinary efforts on developing awareness and innovations in the discourse of emerging global cultures and identities and urban landscapes. Her architectural installations show something without similarities and are influenced by concepts of concrete Art and minimalism.
Her work subject lies in the geometric creation of order, comprising the reduction to the maximum to attain ‘esthetic essence’ coming ‘directly from the mind’ – emerging from yogic science and philosophy – it’s about balance and the transformation of what is. She works primarily Site specific with natural and ephemeral materials, dealing with matters of attachment, detachment and temporariness of existence using natural and ephemeral materials in time/space. Interested in Large Scale Installation and it’s intervening monumentality within the human body and interdimensionality within a place to create a transformative ground for perspective change.
“The goal of concrete art is to develop objects for spiritual use, much as man designs objects for material use.” (Max Bill)
