She uses found objects and appropriates them for her artwork.

In her piece Social Climber, Bruno placed fifteen toilet roll holders and fifteen assorted toilet paper rolls on a wall. The progression from left to right demonstrates the ascending quality in toilet paper. The installation deals with class consciousness and questions luxury, globalization, and consumption.
