Last year, Gaya started her remarkable collaboration with Google Open Gallery, which makes the technology behind Google Cultural Institute’s cultural projects available to artists to publish and share their artwork and other cultural content. Gaya’s artwork was also selected by the Curatorial Team of Google to show in the newly launched Chromecast feature.
