Gaia's practice is based in personal experience both emotional and physical as a disabled artist. She often highlights social issues, in the form of audience experience within her work.
Gaia merges the human experience of reality and something artificial (or made to view), in an attempt to imprint her reality on the audience. In doing this, the viewers are drawn into the experience which in turn becomes their reality; which then has the potential to develop as a new level of clarity and understanding.
