She has worked as a film critic at Film Noir and kulturosoupa.gr and has published her work in Greek Architects, Film Noir, Taste of Cinema and Mark Magazine. Her experimental multidisciplinary practice is focused on the intersection between media theory and architectural space with a special focus towards embodiment, movement, global flows, and the evolution of storytelling.. Kaisar’s work is truly interdisciplinary and brings together a keen interest in theories of space and subjectivity with a record as an artist who creates theoretically sophisticated investigations of the links between space, new technology, desire and storytelling.
