Bodrunova's photographs defy conventional physics and show her subjects as weightless objects with an ability to transcend space and time. She explains, "Sometimes we change the space around us to fit our ideas and sometimes space, place, or time dictates their rules. We can fight or we can embrace, the choice is ours." She continuously explores her desire to search for something new, create her own reality, and define what is real.
