Her research both theoretical and practical focuses on issues related to:

(1) the impact of the historical evolution of technologies -especially information and communication technologies, of the web (1.0, 2.0, 3.0, 4.0)- on:

(a) the senses and on the role of the subject (observer, expectant, participant, and/or actant);

(b) the creation of new ways of perceiving time, space, matter and the process of artistic creation itself;

(2) collaborative, interdisciplinary art, the artistic commons and questions of authorship.

(3) art in the climate emergency and in the energy transition and its impact on the process of artistic creation itself.

(4) non-visual perception processes used in art.

She has participated in several research projects in competitive and commissioned calls (MICINN, MINECO, UPV/EHU, BEAZ), some as principal investigator. Among her publications are her PhD thesis entitled “El Árbol del Arte. Trans-sensory and intersubjective matrix for non-visual art and the silence of the artistic self” (UPV/EHU, 2006), the book The Point of Being (co-edited with Derrick de Kerkhove), the co-edition of an issue of Technoethics, Intellect Journals, and several articles in specialized journals, book chapters and international conference proceedings. She has been a guest speaker in Seville, Bilbao, Frankfurt, Essen and Prague among others.
