After researching boomerang effects the birth of the networked society had on traditional art institutions (accompanied by the demise of socialist society as a different mode of production), she analysed strategies of anonymity and pseudonymity, parallel hyper-narratives, redundant versions, and forgeries anticipating both the post-truth and pre-digital, when becoming a cultural norm. Her present research focuses on changes the post digital photography introduces in classic genres as self-portraiture, or landscape art, especially in aerial images and 360 images, and how new visual descriptions change the way we see the reality.
