Work[edit]

Ex uses light, space, and materials to create her light installations. She uses light in the widest sense possible — natural light, artificial light, plus materials that respond to light such as glass, neon, and LED — to create interactive environments.

Receiving international acclaim for her "Flower from the Universe", Ex establishes herself firmly as an LED artist [2] Next, her "The Walk"[3] is received well by critics and the general public wherever it is shown. "The Waiting" was selected winner in the Landscape category for the 2013 People's Choice Awards.[4]
