After a number of years making discrete works in various materials, and considering various subjects, Mirra’s present rhythm of working takes the form of a kind of paced printmaking, made through walking. The activities are interdependent; the walking structures the printing, and the printing impels the walking. This rhythm is nestled into a cycle of exhibitions that perpetuates the project.

Other recent projects include gehend (Field Recordings 1-3) at Bonner Kunsteverein, KW Institute of Contemporary Art Berlin and Haus Konstruktiv, Zuerich, Farbenweg, indirekter, architecturally embedded among the houses of the Universalmuseum Joanneum in Graz, Austria, Instance the Determination at the University of Chicago, the book Cloud, the, 3, with an afterword by Lyn Hejinian (JRP Ringier/Christoph Keller Editions), and a GSA Art in Architecture project at the Minnesota–Canada border.

Mirra has received awards from the Louis Comfort Tiffany Foundation, the Richard H. Driehaus Foundation, and Artadia: the Fund for Art and Dialogue. She has been a guest of the DAAD Kuenstlerprogramm (Berlin), Office of Contemporary Art Norway (Oslo), Stiftung Laurenz Haus (Basel), Iaspis (Stockholm), and artist-in-residence at the Center for Book Arts at Mills College, and the Consortium for the Arts, University of California, Berkeley.
