Her artworks reflect upon the limits of language and the flaws of communication. She is fascinated by the idea of a perfect language and its impossibility nurtures her artistic practice. In her time-based pieces, she investigates the question of translation from ideas to language and also from one language to another. She finds this problem intriguing because it is a grand philosophical question as well as it is an everyday matter.
