Perry weaves a tapestry of influences, tapping into personal narratives, collective testimonies, and cultural touchstones to explore the swift pace of our hyper-technological era. Her works include expansive sculptures, painting and immersive audio-visual installations that seamlessly blend sound, technology, dance, spoken word, printmaking, and 360-video. With a spectrum of themes, Perry highlights feminist socio-political issues embedded in coded industrial materials, exploring the dynamics of youth, pop culture and 'taste,' , social class and personal histories. She also examines the nuanced realms of motherhood, erotic discourse and mental health. Moving beyond the personal, to explore the broader cultural context.


"To reject distance and autonomy in favour of enlightenment and contingency, communication and recording technologies have become the linchpins of selfhood, making it inevitable to see the world from inside a filter bubble. Alongside her evident interest in sociocultural mapping (gender, social class, pop culture), the personal/diaristic aspect of perry's work has become more pronounced."
