I’m really interested in a series she calls “Archibiology”, which she describes like this:

“Archibiology: The limits of systems are expressed by their escape valves. Explosions
and expulsions relieve tensions that have built up within closed circuits; the result can be
ecstatic or terrifying, depending on the setting. These drawings glide between architectural,
biological and geological systems in order to physically explore the breaks and leaks
sustained by our surroundings (and even by our very bodies). Embedded in the work is
a certain psychological anxiety in trying to hold it all together, along with a surrender to
forces larger than us.”

Go have a look at her website HERE.
