In 2021-2022, she was part of the Post Graduate Art of the National Art School of Lyon.

Her practice takes as a starting point the loom at the origin of computation.

Through a visual, speculative and narrative approach, she explores the historical, technological, mathematical and aesthethic links between weaving, textiles and computers, new media diving into their intertwined vernacular roots.

She develops a multi-layered art practice that brings together weaving, sculpture, installations, videos, and 3D in order to rethink, redefine, and question our relationship to technologies, textiles, and computers and the way they are deployed as tools for the transmission of knowledge, data, traditions, and spirituality.

In 2023, she is one of the residents of Villa Albertine in the United States and of Villa Ndar in Senegal.

She also won the 2023 Faku’Gesi awards for Digital Arts with her multi-layered interactive installation “Nosukaay”

Her work is part of some private collections.
