You can see her dreamy expression running through all the potential stories she has in her hands, but with a theoretical and rational goal that emanates from years of seeing and working with films. She uses a similar modus operandi when creating her sculptures and collages, often independent from her video pieces, but at times establishing parallelisms with them.

In a way, some of his works appear distressing. They are not abstract, although shapes and objects seem blurred and disturbed. His chosen palette, black and white or colors dimmed and subtle, only emphasizes the mental haze. Portrait outlines are fuzzy and the objects from Grant's "Creation" series appear as fantastical artefacts with tortured surfaces, holding turbulent air underneath.
