The body of works discusses the notion of the other. What began as a compositional analysis of Théodore Géricault's canonical painting, The Raft of the Medusa, evolved into engagement with a current social concern regarding the world refugee situation. In Raft: New Shapes, Same Content (2017–19), humanity and humanism are called into question. The project draws an analogy between the refugees drowning at sea and the sailors sent to their deaths in Géricault's painting. Dozens of drawings, digital paintings, sewn paintings, woodcuts, and prints confront us with various aspects of the tragedy, then and now.

The work Home Inspection set out to explore the question: What does the one who is not me look like? A monumental raft, 5x7 sq. m. in size, with hand-stitched fabric patches, reveals hundreds of faces, human features, masks; fantastic figures, women, children, and men, from here and from there, from then and from now. In an attempt to see the other, the work concluded a two-year project in which the other's aspect was revealed within the boundaries of the self.
