Rose Lowder’s frame-by-frame films blend selective experimental processes with ecological ethics. Her precise methodology is evident in the fact that over 35 years the French-Peruvian filmmaker has only shot 23 hours of footage, most of them filmed in many different areas of France and nearby countries. Her short pieces function as a weaving of flickering images, enabling the viewer to have a simultaneous experience of a scene from different perspectives. This prismatic take on human perception dissects how nature presents itself to human sensitivity. In the 1990s Lowder started working on her ‘Bouquets’, a series of one-minute research films each showing a specific natural site in the South of France. The latest series, Bouquets 31-40, which was shot over many years from 2014 to 2021 will premiere at Metabolic Rift.
