Julia has created an art movement called Neometa, or neometamodernism, within which she explores interactions between humans and technologies.
In her work, Julia uses digital forms of art – interactive graphics with visual coding and procedural/kinetic animations – along with more traditional ones, such as sculpture and painting.
Her works have been exhibited in Kyiv's galleries and art clusters, particularly in Lavra Gallery, Modern Art Research Institute of Ukrainian Academy of Arts, and Block A Gallery.
At different times, Julia cooperated with painter Oleg Tistol, representative of the art movement "Ukrainian New Wave" Illya Chichkan, sculptor Nazar Bilyk, and others.
In addition, the artist has worked with young musicians on creating generative album covers and music videos. Shutkevych cooperated with DZOB, an electroacoustic band from Dnipro; Diova, electronic musician; and LavrP, Belorussian violinist and electro-ambient composer.
