Gravitate gives insight into Rolinson’s meditative drawing process in which
she explores sensations, structures, movements and connections. Hand-made
pencil drawings on paper are often digitally manipulated to experiment with
forms in light and colour, and simple combinations of lines are repeated
building up complex forms. Rolinson's construction rules are a method of
disassociating from conscious thoughts and allowing spatial patterns and
movements to emerge. Some of these works conclude like solved puzzles,
whilst others have the potential to grow infinitely.
Her installations are immersive, extendable structures that can be adjusted
to fit diverse environments from light festivals to art galleries.  In 2016
she was awarded The Lumen Global Digital Arts Prize Sculpture and 3D Award,
and the first prize at the inaugural International Art CHI Exhibition,
Computer and Human Interaction Conference, San Jose, California for Flown
developed in collaboration with artist and programmer Sean Clark. Examples
of Esther's drawings and prints have been acquired by Victoria and Albert
Museum, London.

Best wishes
Irini
