“My work may not be entirely accurate but it's often precise, meaning, every piece I make involves an ecosystem of measurements where all parts rely and relate to each other but may not work outside of the individual sculpture or video. This can be literal, in making The Weird Sisters video I had to precisely measure glue, and borax to make the right slime consistency, but it can be metaphorical too, I like my work to feel tightly constructed, I achieve that through a high attention to detail and craftsmanship along with a conceptual push to always instil a tension in my work. A tension between holding everything together and letting it all go.” Rose Nestler, 2021.
