Using the development of the performance Self-portrait of an absence (2016) as case study the article discusses relevant issues that ground her own media art practice and its cross-disciplinary aspect. The article is structured in two parts: the first depicts and analyses the creative process of the performance and the second unfolds some of the relevant discoveries from the experiment in relation to media art aesthetics in its hybrid quality.
