Her design practice reflect, from an antropological point of view, about the meaning of materials, tecniques, symbolic images, connecting them to the poetic and visionary dimension of human beings. Her works arise from a crossbreeding of materials and techniques, both digital and handcrafted. The academic research is currently focused on the Post Digital, a converging knowledge space that connects different disciplines, like biology and digital manufacturing processes. Through writing and practice, the aim is to investigate the possible intersections between industry and craftsmanship, jewellery and body, technology and humanity.
