Robinson's work explores the subversion of the codes of snapshot photography, the minimalist landscape, and their correlation to memory in reference to issues of home and domesticity. She has been working with conceptually based art within the medium of photography and inter-media, and is consistently moving her studio practice forward to coincide with the pulse of contemporary art. Thirty-Five Years examines the integrity of the photograph itself as a device to document life. The snapshots of domestic spaces provide personal insight into the banality of the everyday lived in the range of different places called home over the years. The larger body of work in the Thirty-Five Years series places vintage family snapshots with these current re-interpretations of home and domesticity in photographs of personal spaces. She is interested in the act of re-animating early photographs, bringing attention to the dicotomy and how specifically the process of documenting life is the mainstay which informs her work.
