Special Individual Circumstances. Rose and Boynton were involved in decision-making in all areas of this experimental video. A video describing their working methods and the production of rush forms part of the Inspiration to Order exhibition. The work interrogates formal qualities of imagery, some derived from abstract painting. The flow of images, sometimes disrupted by memories, suggests the consciousness of a contemplative viewer preoccupied not only by what is seen but also by its structure or syntax. Informed by the optical effect produced by Bridget Riley in her black-and-white paintings, rush captures the movements of tree trunks, which, when filmed from a fast-moving car, produce a similar flickering, stroboscopic effect disorienting the eye and brain. The digital manipulations and animations create a dialogue between digital and painterly abstraction and photographic realism, their boundaries and their interrelationship. Projected at 8 x 3 metres it creates an immersive environment with stereo sound and was shown in solo shows in Croatia and Nottingham, in a group exhibition in London at Oxo Tower, and in Inspiration to Order, with a catalogue ISBN: 09773967-7-0, at California State University Art Gallery, Winchester School of Art, Wimbledon College of Art, and the Art Historians' Annual Conference at the University of Ulster. rush was selected for exhibition at the Egilssta'ir experimental video festival in Iceland and shortlisted for the Alcoa prize. It was also selected for the Short Film Experiment, Bolzano, Italy, and Videoformes Clermont-Ferrand, France. The solo exhibition in Krizic Roban Gallery in Croatia was reviewed in Vijenac, the premier independent Croatian culture arts weekly. Resulting from this Rose was invited to write an article for Zivot Umjetnosti, Croatian Magazine for Contemporary Arts (published December 2007). The solo exhibition of rush at the Surface Gallery, Nottingham was reviewed in UK Metro Associated Newspapers Ltd. RAE_import_type : Exhibition RAE_uoa_type : LICA
