It includes a montage of found images relating to the recent oil spill off of the Gulf Coast depicted through four iPhone interface frames.

Rose has practiced Printmaking since 2008. Under Professor Ruthann Godollei at Macalester College, she learned print techniques including limestone lithography, letterpress, intaglio, linoleum relief, photopolymer relief, and silk screenprinting all with an emphasis on accessibility and politicism of print media.

Rose values print arts as a community-based and accessible medium that flourishes in the Do-It-Yourself culture. Currently Rose practices silk screen and letterpress printmaking through personal and freelance work at her print shop, Plowshares Press, north of Corvallis, Oregon.
