Life’s Loop, Relentless Rebirth, 2021

Acrylic-on-cardboard animation. Digital media.

Ross says: ‘On many walks through the Curragh, I witnessed the earth grow over the discarded litter. This reminded me that no matter what, everything around us will return to the ground beneath us. My animation plays on loop to represent this endless cycle of life and death in which we live.’
