2004 was a year of learning, the second one of Celeste at the Institute of Arts. It can be resumed as a year full of painting, art theory, European old movies, and long trips to La Boca district (where the university was located). She uses these trips to read, -Henry Miller, Lawrence Durell, Blaise Cendrars-.  She was supposed to learn digital arts at the school, but the program was extremely slow and the equipments not very much up-to-date, so she started an autonomous learning of software.  Tones of experimentations lead her to become a specialist on the digital composition, results that we can see from 2005 onwards. Celeste did her first public presentation in Argentina at Estudio Abierto, an event organised by the Buenos Aires city government. In a showcase window in the important Palacio Barolo she exhibited the complete Chicken Lips series.

At the end of 2003 the introduction with Arthur Russell's music made a truly incisive effect in Najt’ s work. During the second half of the year Celeste designed her first website, being her oeuvre first formal-steady presentation to the outside world.
