Kathy Rose's work includes installations consisting of haunting "Living Tapestries" in which she combines fabrics with video projections.
Derived from Rose’s videos, the pieces are inspired by Japanese screens in their use of projections moving across multiple veils, becoming dimensionally magical; exquisite mini spectacles of illusion.
Each piece uses one projector and a veil structure approximately 3' x 4'.
"My intent is to create an authenticity that surpasses the merely digital."
In this video I am delving into Walt Whitman's magnificent "The Sleepers" - reflecting what in the poem is most dear to me. It also draws upon my childhood love of dollhouses and puppets, as I work in a miniature set, creating a doll universe.
And "The Sleepers" is a recognition of my Jewish heritage, with images of my mother, my niece, myself.

Kathy Rose's video created for the collage by artists around the world saluting Stravinsky's "Rite of Spring", for the Festival International de Videodanse de Bourgogne.
Excerpt from a "Living Tapestry" - Video installation using projections on fabric. Integrating projected video onto veils and fabrics the imagery features both abstraction and figures flowing and dripping in a universe of their own.
A poetic vision of the self and the moon, carpeted with voices; a ritual of the mind. Made in 2008, but ever relevant for its rhythms and butoesque qualities.
