Swistel predominantly focuses on themes of sustainability in her work in order to show a conceptual relationship between society and art. Many sustainable artists are focused on the act of sustainability and less on the conceptual aspect of the work. Swistel uses her work to raise questions, and inspire though provoking concepts about sustainability and our society.
