Rachel Rossin / £18.00
Produced on the occasion of Rachel Rossin: Stalking the Trace, Zabludowicz Collection, London, 21 March - 7 July 2019.
Self-taught programmer and painter Rachel Rossin works at the forefront of the artistic medium of virtual reality. In 2015, she was a fellow at New Inc., the New Museum incubator dedicated to collaboration across art, design and technology. Her works merge images from internet sources, such as video games and stock computer illustration, with real-life objects to create abstract virtual spaces. These seemingly impossible juxtapositions construct immersive landscapes and still lives, which blend together as if they were imploding in space.
This publication comprises of an introduction by Programme Director, Maitreyi Maheshwari, a new essay by Mikkel Rosengaard and extracts from a number of texts that have informed Rossin's work - Arcadia by tom Stoppard, BETWEEN PAST AND FUTURE: Six Exercises in Political Thought by Hannah Arendt, Entropy Made Visible by Robert Smithson, To those born after by Bertolt Brecht, Story of Your Life by Ted Chiang and Altermodern by Nicholas Bourriaud. Each publication comes with a screen printed electrical bag.
