Her research investigates the contingency and fictional quality of memory related to performance and knowledge and performative quality of all remembering. In the performance book, she uses a technique called stream of consciousness which is commonly used in modern literature. In order to expose involuntary memory writing is used as a form of inner voice- monologue. The books she has chosen are the ones that are censored for different reasons. To be free from auto-censor, she uses hand-written text in those censored books. The automatic writing is not legible as the memory forms itself.
