Sarah Rose is interested in extra-informational and lived qualities of reproduction within the processes of translation, abstraction and transformation. Her work engages with ephemeral, unstable, improper, candid forms of information proliferation — in particular understandings of speech, voice, orality/aurality and sound. Rose is interested in how this information is handled, giving rise to questions of the self in a wider context and environment. Much of the work involves the concerns of publishing but results in sculpture, audio installation, written, still and moving image outcomes.
