She is a film director and artist studying at the Royal Academy of Arts in The Hague.

Installation O3 is a work of so-called olfactory art, creating a state of vulnerability at a time when the greatest dangers are invisible. The moment of electric discharge and the ozone released during it seduce us with their power, but at the same time act as a cold-blooded means of exterminating life. Smell signals danger to the brain, and as it changes in space, even a low concentration can damage nasal tissues or even cost lives.
