Her artworks are realized in a variety of forms and media, which include installation, sound, video, performance, printmaking, and drawing. In recent work she has explored the ways that beliefs, world views and value-systems are constructed and reproduced. The roles that memory, the historical record and spatial practice play in these processes have been of particular interest.
