He then uses his perspectives to create mixed-media installations, which often involve videos and performances.

In 2013, she was a guest resident of Matadero Madrid in Spain, as an exchange artist of Tokyo Arts and Space.
In 2016, she was selected to participate in GoneWest project in Brugge, Belgium.

Her practice is based on her fieldwork of specific places, where she starts up a project with the local people she selects.

Her quest is to compose her own new narratives to retell the past and present together under a different light.
