Christine's primary motive in making her work is to reproduce a new reality, something that looks real but cannot actually exist, except when viewed through the camera. Trying to move away from the conventions of linear perspective she brings together disparate viewpoints in her constructed spaces. For her the most interesting part of the image is where the fragments of the model overlap and how the intentional confusing of perspective allows the viewer to simultaneously recognise the architectural landscape while also understanding that something is not quite true. Thus encouraging us to view the world as slightly askew.
