Rosa Mekmann

Rosa Menkman is a Dutch artist and researcher. Her work focuses on noise artifacts that result from accidents in both analogue and digital media. As a compendium to this research, she published the Glitch Moment/um (2011), a little book on the exploitation and popularization of glitch artifacts.
Menkman developed the politics of resolution setting further in a second book titled Beyond Resolution (2020). In this book, she describes how the standardization of resolutions is a process that generally promotes efficiency, order and functionality in our technologies. But how as a side effect, the setting of resolutions also compromises and obfuscates alternative possibilities. In 2019 Menkman won the Collide, Arts at CERN Barcelona award, which inspired her recent research into im/possible images.
