Artist and researcher with transdisciplinary background in media arts, cognitive science and linguistics. Her work explores what it means to be permitted to live, work, and breathe in a certain territory. She uses language as an art material, observes intercultural miscommunication, and reflects on systemic reasons that cause communication barriers. She makes art in the forms of installation, film, soundscape, painting, monoprint, and feminist chatbot. She was selected for British Council AltCity Digital Arts Residency, and exhibited in the UK, Turkey, Austria and Ireland.
