Rosemary Burden is a Canadian artist who lives in Vancouver BC. Her conceptual installation work uses any medium that she deems appropriate to investigate her idea. An almost complete set of ancient Shakespeare volumes have been transformed into a cloud of butterﬂies, and 25,000 individual beads were used to translate poems and quotations into glittering strands of binary code. Her teachers and fellow students at Emily Carr University of Art + Design introduced her to the beauty of mathematics and particle physics, which has continued to inform her work, and she developed her graphic skills by observing and caricaturing nature.
She has a passion for gardening which goes back to childhood, and she loves to hike on the North Shore trails with her husband and two large dogs.
She is honoured to be included in the 13 Feet Above the Ground art collective.
