Rowan’s work explores the slippery complexities of water that draws together a liquid relationship between the human body and geological and ecological systems. Influenced by Hydrofeminist theory charting the movement of water from the liveness of melting ice, across weather systems and within bodily fluids like sweat, she develops (using a range of media including sculpture, installation, performance, sound and video) ephemeral, alchemical and transformative pieces to evoke fragility and transience.
