This work specifically explores Roses own experience with her surroundings, with a focus on looking outwards on to nature while being stuck inside. The image explores the feelings of being solitary, and stuck in a period of four months of almost complete isolation. The layering of over 130 images of the singular view to the outside world, becomes a documentation and archive of a fixed perspective, a continuum showing time and movement. In a way the images become a form of memory, replacing each other as time goes by, the final image is not one singular photograph, time stamp or view, but a collection of all previous possibilities, combined to create a new reality. The new reality removes all previous confines such as the window pane, the wall and glass separating her from the outside world, instead focusing on the chaotic but inviting, aesthetic of the outside world.
Rose seeks to create a sustainable practice that aligns itself with her interest in environmentalism and ultimately looks to invite viewers to reconnect themselves with what has been forgotten or unrealised. Through documentation there’s an exploration of the fluidity and instability of nature seen through the fixed, container of the urban living environment.
The work looks to share experience through the exploration of space and immediate/surrounding nature. By doing so Rose hopes to start a discourse surrounding the positive changes that can be made to create a better symbiotic relationship for man and the natural world.
