For the past ten years, she has provided visual design and implementation of video for live performances in venues ranging from small rock clubs and art galleries to the Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts. She is one half of Oms, a live multimedia collaboration that integrates visuals with sound by incorporating improvisational and compositional elements throughout spacious, ethereal arrangements.

Artistic Philosophy: Stroik creates bodies of work that are ignited by ideas centered around visual narratives that explore the intersections between the organic, manmade and virtual worlds we live in. She investigates concepts of simultaneously being present and disconnected, and how the natural world becomes entangled in our digital lives. Her work can be site-specific, investigating the individual’s perception of everyday surroundings by exploring the ideas of peripheral vision, perspective and memory.
