Ekaterina’s work focuses on exploring imaginary and invented worlds, hypothetical realities and parallel realms suggested as alternatives to our surrounding environment. It asks questions such as “How do abstract processes give rise to real world images, in particular images describing a place or a space?” and “What are the different dimensions and facets of what we perceive to be reality, and the various ways of viewing the world we live in?”.
