Searching for a way communication apart from the visual image but almost like telepathy, and with a common interest in the voice, Galia and Bernadette started their process by sharing voice recordings in which it was possible to hear the size of the space through echo. Then, through a sound dialogue, they became the echo of each other.
"We are free echoes, we imagined that as a kind of ghost while usually echo repeats the same tone pitch but becomes more and more quiet, our task to echo each other had more freedom."
At the end there was the feeling that they got to know each other from their singings and that they are connected from the body.
Her work is generated from a dialogue between drawing and movement, establishing a platform between performance art and visual art. The registration of movement and the passage of time, the scenic presence of the body and its projection into the architecture, are the main axis of her projects.t
