Gretta believes that new technology should be used as "artistic tools", because of that she has become involved in several collaborative work of particular importance, such as the "Symmetrical Reincarnations"(1988), in which her paintings are combined with Dr. Timothy Binkley's Symmetry" program computer print-outs. At the occasion of Gretta's retrospective exhibition at the Museum of Image and Sound (Sao Paulo) they presented an installation with high tech computer equipment especially loaned by Microtec. As soon as the spectator enters in the room, his image is being captured by a hidden camera and was instantly transformed by Binkley's software "Symmetry" and then projected on a computer screen, this software was created and based on Gretta's series, "Evocative Recollections". There was also a printer connected to the system that would make prints of the chosen image which could be signed by the artist. Timothy Binkley was at that time the Dean of "The School of Visual Arts" (New York) - Computer Centre and was seen as an innovator that challenged the media. With "Symmetry" Gretta created several computerised lace images that she utilised in different forms on several of her series.
