Therapeutic and beguiling work from Rose Pilkington

We’re utterly mesmerised by Rose Pilktington’s experimental 3D animation and its equally beguiling stills, Auroratone. The work is currently on show at east London’s Dreambagsjaguarshoes, and is based around a visual therapy technique devised by filmmaker Cecil Stokes in the 1940s. According to Rose, Stokes’ therapy “called upon the psychological powers of colour and sound to calm patients of war.” Heck, we’ve not been to war but we can still see the powers of Rose’s work to calm, to delight and to soothe; based around swirls of colour and shiny textures. Each moment in the animation is like a swathe of silk, a gentle rub on the back whispering “there there, It’s Nice That; there there.”
