When Neda Naujokaitė chooses motifs in her work, she tries to combine static and dynamic, inside and outside, personal and impersonal images - clouds floating on the glass of a lonely car, light streaming through the windows of her grandmother's house, or images reflected inside a car on a sunny summer day, with highways, cars, and the landscape seen through the window of a train. Neda analyses how the chosen images and fragments speak about specific places and experiences. She emphasises the importance of lighting, reflections, or specific details of the environment, as well as immersion and change. Neda finds that these aspects activate consciousness and visual thinking and helps her to recall different places, their atmosphere and depth. This kind of representation creates an intertwined atmosphere of memory and experience. Meanwhile, using video footage and sound installations, Neda Naujokaitė tries to create a kind of cacophony, a mechanicalness, a speed, a movement and a dynamic of travelling from one point to the next, contrasting with the multilayered silence of painting.
