Within the past few years, Rachel Rose (1986, New York USA) has established herself as one of the foremost artists working in and with video. Rose’s work complicates the divisions between multiple categories of moving image: found and original footage coalesce to explore states between real and artificial, interior and exterior, dead and alive. Rose nods to, draws from, and contributes to a long history of cinematic innovation, putting to use and expanding upon noted audiovisual and editing strategies. Whether investigating cryogenics, the American Revolutionary War, modernist architecture, or the sensory experience of walking in outer space, Rose’s multivalent body of work articulates with accuracy and nuance what it is that makes and keeps us human and the ways we seek to alter, enhance, and escape that designation.‚Äč
