Watson seeks to present alternative worldviews, often via little known map projections, by engaging with the topic of mapping itself. Her practice is informed by her continuing fascination with the history of traditional board games, maps and scientific discovery. In 2005 she completed the largest map of the universe yet created, in conjunction with the Australian National University Research School of Astronomy and Astrophysics. Watson has exhibited extensively throughout New Zealand, Australia, Europe and the USA.
