Biography

b. 1975, Chicago, IL
Lives and works in Los Angeles, CA

Ross-Ho’s work takes the form of sculptural installations and material environments that propose dynamic and imagined ecologies of labor, time and the building of speculative archives. Through close observation, she identifies and brings into form connective tissues between personal and eternal conditions. She builds formal syntax comprised of objects, images, and performative gestures mined from personal and collective phenomena, which aim to inscribe meaning through poetic systems of circuitry and taxonomy. Utilizing conflicting sensibilities of the forensic, hyperbolic, and theatrical, her work aims to function as a sensitive instrument: tuned to carefully observe, record, transcribe and translate the landscapes of our made and lived in surroundings.
