Working with a wide range of media, Sozou’s current body of work is focused on a sculptural and spatial approach to art. In her site specific installations, she maintains the honesty and aesthetics of simple industrial mass materials and explores their 'micro-macro' elements, as well as their reflective, distortive and ultimately alienating qualities. As metaphors for the workings of the visual system, the works play with one's vision and human perception whilst adhering to a somewhat minimal formal stringency.
