Norton frequently incorporates living plants into her sculptures. Her work plays with the relationship between what is sculpture, what is documentation, and what is photography. Some of her work is described as documentation of installations, but some of it is described as photography. She creates work with dual functions - there is no difference in the physical set up. The still lifes that are photographed could serve as sculptural installations, just as the sculptural installations can / do serve as photography. Her work not only stands out because of this play, but also its use of mixed media and living plants. It is clean, modern, and can fit into many categories.
