"'In Ghostly Japan' is a collection of old ghost stories, traditions dealing with ghosts, and personal ruminations on the afterlife by the turn-of-the-century Japanese scholar Lufcadio Hearn." Lafcadio Hearn was one of the first great interpreters of things Japanese for Western readers. His keen intellect, poetic imagination and clear style have ensured him a devoted readership for more than a century.

The use of glass and industrial material in her compositions are associated to images of utopias with idealised landscapes and architectures generating a poetry of illusion and allusion where the visual field is disrupted.
