We live in a world of consumables. Where our primal need is convenience with a flagrant and flippant disregard for the consequences of our actions. ONE BILLION disposable hot drink cups per year end up in landfill in Australia alone. The scale of which is unimaginable to a human mind. This body of work by Ros Pach invites you to explore beyond the realms of this impossibility. And to THINK.
Ros is a Melbourne based artist with a love for the feel of a camera in her hands. For as long as she can remember she has been taking photos and no matter what she has done in life (from graphics/webdesign, music and a long stint in corporate life), she always gravitate back to photography.
"As I get older, I am so much more aware of the world around me. I feel as if I need to document it via my artistic practice. In this fast paced and ever changing world, the necessity to document it is even more vital or it will be lost forever. So much has already been lost due to the digitalisation of our society. So much is lost in cyberworld without it ever being preserved on paper and film. Our future generations need to know their world before they existed like we need to know ours before we existed."
With a recent rediscovery of her love of analogue processes, Ros has combined old and new technologies for this exhibition exploring human waste and the impact on the environment.
THINK. will exhibit from March 20th to 31st with the official opening night on Friday the 22nd of March.
