Her most recent work focuses on the naturalization of vision mediated by devices willing to observe. In 2004 and 2005 she led the research project Videored: Hacia la creación colectiva de video en Internet (Videored: Toward the Collective Creation of Video on the Internet) with support from the 2008 Banco Santander scholarship for New Technologies. This project received an honorable mention at the 11th International Image Festival in Colombia and it is part of the Arte≠vida: acciones por artistas de las Américas (Art≠life: actions for artists of the Americas) collection of the Bank of the Republic of Colombia. Videored generated a dynamic webpage (www.javeriana.edu.co/videored/) and the book “Codificar/decodificar: prácticas, espacios y temporalidades del audiovisual en Internet” (Coding/Decoding: practices, spaces, and temporalities of the audiovisual media on the Internet).
