Watermelatonin explores the moment between hazard and safety. The ratio is balanced; the energy is present in a stillness, yet the duration is volatile. Nellie Rogerson examines the potentials of objects, both hand-crafted and found, then constructed together, so that they become ‘experiments’ encompassing latent energy in playful modes of display.
Watermelatonin reconnoiters the succinct modes of assemblage, material sensibility, and harnesses a dynamic tension between the forces of weight, fragility and latency.
