The work addresses her masters research concerning the hybrid, and metamorphic imagery of the grotesque. It references madness, existential crises, self-loathing and labour.
Partly influenced by the 1915 novella entitled, "Die Verwandlung" by Franz Kafka, in which Gregor Samsa awakens one morning and finds that he has transformed into an ungeheuren ungeziefer (a monstrous vermin),
Metamorphosis explores the hybrid grotesque from a feminist perspective by employing body extensions, kinetic objects, physical restraints, and suspending the body.
Her preference is to meet people outside of the space and lead viewers into the room.
