With her work, Strohmaier shifts between many different dimensions of presentation and reality appears to be rather a matter of viewpoint than a fixed idea. Blurring the borders between photography, video and drawings, as well as between analogue and digital images, she investigates and deconstructs traditional spatial concepts and depictions.
