In Constructions of Reality, Robertson uses the panoramic image to investigate the notion of fantasy within our reality. She specifically looks for the point of failure within the image, where the image is blurring or lost, and where voids and fissures are created.

By inverting the images, Robertson challenges the audience’s perception of reality, inviting them to contemplate the filter by which they view the world, thereby hinting at an alternate interpretation.
