Radiance aka Rose Sugarlove is a new media visual artist, Vj and designer from Byron Bay, Australia. She works with video and live performance in a range of settings, from contemporary art installations to large scale vibrant projections at festivals around the world.
Her work is focused on an investigation of the landscape and the transient nature of existence. Recently she created a site-specific, durational walking performance in Tallinn, Estonia which formed a body of work which maps the terrain physically and psychologically through a series of visual motifs and videos. The work extends on the long history of mapping landscape, with New Media techniques in response to contemporary culture and the impact of technology.
Playing with the audio-visual aesthetic and concepts of synaesthesia she has showcased her work events such as Vivid (Au), White Nights (Au), Stereosonic (Au), Museum of Contemporary art of Montreal (CA), Glastonbury festival (Uk), Scopitone (France), Athens International Video Art Festival (GR), Live Performers Meeting (Italy), Sonica (Montenegro), AV playground (Austria), Glow Festival (Italy), Creature Live Art (Lithuania), Polymer Culture Factory (Estonia), Burning Mountain Festival (Switzerland), Rainbow Serpent Festival (Au) and The Australian Center of Moving Image (Au).
Radiance is also the founder and co-director of VJ / Live Visual Performance community initiative called Project Pixel. This venture explores live visual performance and arts through presenting exhibitions, events and has hosted AV nights as apart of Melbourne Fringe Festival, Pause Fest and The Gertrude Street Projection festival.
Using experimental hybrids of traditional and digital art forms, she explores how contemporary phenomena such as communication technologies and audio-visual space influence our perception of the modern world.
