Slater's fine art practice explores different aspects of memory, memorialization and perception. She uses neuroscience and psychology to inform her work and is drawn to symbolism and portraiture to reveal the way in which we, collectively and as individuals, process and respond to our world through memory and photography. Slater has provided a free portrait service to hospice users for several years. Many individuals consent to their portraits being used in Slater's wider artistic practice, thus uniquely and sensitively expanding their memorialisation. In the series Still, Life, Slater pairs the portraits she has taken at the hospice with constructed still-life "Memory Palaces" in which she seeks to memorialise valued conversations held with individuals when Death was also in the room.
