At the intersection of Architecture, Art, Design and Science
In support of the documentary film, the exhibition - 'The Unfolding' consists of various artworks, including drawings, design sketches, paintings and large paper scrolls telling stories of the landscape in abstract representations, epitomising the inherent living structures that are visible and non-visible elements of Nature’s designs. Within the paintings and drawings there are hidden narratives where through the process of unfolding, Nature reveals to us beauty. However, beauty is not only what we see, but also the inherent processes and morphological sequences of creation that make the whole, which results in a feeling of belonging.
Roös proposes finding solutions for our current planetary crisis in the natural order of Nature. Embedded in architecture, art, design and scientific analysis, the artists’ paintings celebrate the splendour and interconnectivity of everything in Nature, a world we must preserve. Archival cotton paper and large storyline scrolls are an eclectic combination of mixed media and organic material, exhibiting a strong undertone of sketching, drawing and painting, presented in exhibitions, installations, a new book release and a documentary film.
These works represent and are a result of over a decade of research by Dr Roös, resulting in various publications, writings, theoretical propositions, conceptual designs, built projects, policy changes, and the release of the documentary film Living Structures - The Architecture for Life.
Nature talks to us, not in words but through a nature language that connects with our senses.
