Visiting speaker - Rose Butler

Rose Butler

Rose Butler is a senior lecturer of fine art at Sheffield Hallam University, she visited Leeds College Of Art during February of 2014. She came to discuss her previous and current works as a practicing Photographer that also has taken to film and moving images. Her work was like nothing I have ever seen, totally caught me by surprise and immediately caught my intrigue. The combinations of still images and audio she used in the sequence of mouse traps was possibly my favourite work that she showed. Reminding me of the on edge moments you get so often in modern horror films. She also talked about the manner she works in when producing her work and the method she used to come up with her ideas. It was just what I wanted to hear, she explained to the lecture hall that she uses her instinct as a photographer to capture images and then compiles them to come up with a relevant idea that relates to modern times and is new and creative. All in all Rose's lecture was inspiring and left me wondering what I would like to become after the three years I will spend at Leeds College Of Art.
