In the series of Bubbles Loher embeds videos into the hollow body of hand-blown glass sculptures. The videos are also produced using human choreography in the bird's eye view, that represent of "micro-societies", such as the one of men working like bees depicted in one of her scenes, whose existence is reflected in the mechanical tasks that assure their survival. The harmonious kaleidoscopic design of Loher's latest works provides another and more global vision of a dystopic world in which the balance between man and nature has been destroyed by the pervasive presence of machines. Synchronized movement becomes the subject of the work, and is the engine that moves kaleidoscopic geometrical compositions.

Loher takes her play with ephemeral objects and solid materials to a new level in her most recent development. In the Bubble-Series, she embeds video into the hollow body of hand blown glass sculptures.
Timebubble, Airbubble and Spacebubble feature three characters: the Master of Time (exceptionally interpreted by the American composer Philip Glass), the Master of Space, and the Master of Light, all committed in a quest to find solutions to pre-serve their worlds.
