Honan's work utilizes a wide range of techniques and approaches to create video and photography installations that push the boundaries of traditional cinematic forms. These installations often take the form of large outdoor site-specific projections,and also incorporate single and multi-channel installations where video screens are projected, suspended, multiplied, miniaturized, or otherwise manipulated.
One of the distinctive features of her practice is the use of large-scale outdoor projections, which have included projects that span large town buildings, as well as projections in dark fields or in empty abandoned locations. These projects allow her to create immersive and experiential artworks that engage the viewer on a sensory and emotional level.
Overall, her art practice is centered on using experimental film narratives to explore themes of society, culture, and the human experience, and to create immersive and thought-provoking experiences that inspire and challenge the viewer. She sees video as a medium that is receptive, flexible, and far-reaching, where she can create work that encourages viewers to engage with the world around them in new and meaningful ways.
