Batsry's work displays ephemeral transitory images that are difficult to process rationally. Her interest in the notion of perception became more pronounced in the early 90's when she studied the work of Buckminster Fuller, in particular his vision disorder that caused a near constant blurring of images. She produced several works inspired by Fuller including "A Simple Case of Vision" and "Of Persistence of Absence." Each examined the idea of distortion and perception through video and space.
