“You are walking down the road and stumble because of a root that is breaking the asphalt: boom! you are immediately dragged out of your thoughts and you find yourself back into the same place.”

She would like to think of these kind of situations as ‘deviations’ as they unexpectedly mutate the flux of our thinking. It’s part of her practice to intervene in urban space by placing ‘annotations’ which in some way can provoke a shift or a reflection by asking questions or playing around with the ordinary.

This kind of experience helps us thinking of our body as a part of a bigger system: Who am I in my different surroundings/ in different spaces? "Where are my feet standing? What is my neighborhood and what is it telling me? Where does the sun rise and which part of the soil is it warming up?".
