This series looks at assertive reactions to things not being what they should be. Borrowing from Magritte, an ambiguous white sphere appears in rooms, public spaces, and nature. In Magritte’s paintings, people are unaware of the object. A 1967 television series, ‘The Prisoner’ featured another sphere, nicknamed “Rover”, where it was used to enforce subservience.
In ‘Communing with Rover’, people are confronted with the object, but react with wariness, contemplation, and resistance.
