Aufiero's work engages interplay of whimsy and weightiness, constructed through objects and words. Her use of materials not seated in perfection of technique mediates analogue, digital and crafted mediums. Ideas are woven together through objects pointing to our desire and attainment for elusive values such as happiness and love.
