ANALOGIES consists of a series of simple camera movements that are rendered diachronically - several different aspects of the action are shown on the screen at once using multiple screen structures. By playing with the time delays between these images, new kinds of space, action, gesture, and temporality have been found.
"... a sensuous piece of visual music ... staggered imagery in everflowing, Godardian movements, enhanced by sumptuous color and by delayed actions of concentrated rhythmic power." - Amos Vogel
"When Rose fills the screen with 25 images, the experience is akin to music. An image ripples across the screen as a theme echoes across the different instruments of a full orchestra, each image an arabesque in a Persian rug." - Noel Carroll, The Soho Weekly News

"I consider myself an escape artist. I hope to travel in the fifth dimension, speaking unknown languages, discover the next step in the evolution of thought. I build structural parables that suggest the universe beyond what we can explain. " - Peter Rose
