Dila took part in a collaborative project conducted by the artist Dr. Ellen Pearlman with Tallinn University which is funded by the Vertigo project as part of the STARTS program of the European Commission. The project is titled as AIBO: A. I. Brainwave Opera which had its world premiere in February 2020 in Tallinn. Dila worked as a smart textile costume designer and designed the costume that displays the emotions of the performer in a light form by getting the data from an EEG headset.
