108 Rosebery Ave is a series of window installations in a Victorian Shop front on Rosebery Ave presented by Maggie Ellenby since 1993. Coming from a background in photography she argues that this is a time based work, a single work of indefinite duration. The changing windows – now approaching 100 in number, form a slow slide show, a collage through time, on this busy main road. Anonymous on site and deliberately simple, they are written for the passing audience and have become an integral part of the local landscape. The format changes. Some are assemblages, of for example, rubber gloves, some large prints, neon or text works. Small objects revolve slowly on a disco ball motor in a series of interval pieces titled in variants of the word ‘nothing’. The common thread is that of a synthetic ecology, a preoccupation with the Anthropocene, our interface with the ‘natural world’.
