Green Skin / Affective Interstice began as a personal exercise to look at the solid surfaces of the built environment from a vulnerable and feminine standpoint. Textures were analysed as areas of mediation of the human, built and natural interactions on a microscopic level. The video work Texture is Identity was screened at Art Encounters Foundation, Zacheta Project Room, Borderline Art Space and Media Art Festival Arad.
