Budor creates installations, environments, and sculptures, that recall moments of cinematic experience via their atmospheric scenographies. She explores histories of cinema and architecture, in order to merge concepts of reality and fiction in new ecosystems. Her works often contain used movie props, special effects, and historical remnants of utopian architecture. Budor places the history of the found object into a new narrative, evoking an uncanny form of memory and emotional connection in the viewer.

She explores the intertwining narratives of mainstream cinema and architectural structures in ever-evolving environments. Integrating re-appropriated screen-used cinema props into her installations, sculptures, and staged settings, she has given these objects a second life in a new context outside that of the cinematic arena.
