 I define my work as transdisciplinarby the integration and search of solutions through the intersection between art and sciences. Despite having an undefined horizon, they integrate, organize and margeThe body becomes pivotal in an aesthetics full of rituals and ancestral signs, keeping it close to the material that constitutes, this same material that stimulates the denial and disgust. I consider this composition a developer mechanism, keeping the body as the character that transits between macro and micro, public and private.ofan aesthetics considered alternative, expanded and a lot of times organic, processing in platforms in times traditional and technical; fluids, blood, remains, oxidation, putrefactionThe feminine, the (de)colonization, deconstruction of privileges, syncretism, indigenous issues, gender,and recycling.politicsJust like insanity, art wasn’t a choice, it was a need.

Paternally has Portuguese and Jewish origin and is the eighth generation of Friar Antonio Galvao Santanna, Brazilian saint. And maternally descended from Native Americans of the Puri ethnicity. The paternal family was one of the families responsible for the colonization of the Natives which she descends maternally. This colonization was responsible for the marginalization and near extinction of them and Prado suffered directly with the colonial heritage, therefore saying that she carries "the colonizer and colonized".
In Germany, found more information about their ethnicity, especially Paul Ehrenreich, Berliner anthropologist and photographer, responsible for studies on Puri mythology and the feminine role in their tribes.
