ABOUT

Shae Rooke is a photographer, video and installation artist based in Melbournes West. Her current artworks play off mis/communication and offer multiple interpretations of the world around us – focussing on landscape, memory, perception and emotion. Shae creates intricate installations and illusiory video’s and photographs from ordinary objects which merge natural and constructed landscapes, mess with scale and twist your perception. Shae is inspired by $2 shops, pop culture and long walks with her camera. Her favourite words are creepy and cute. 


Shae has exhibited throughout Australia, Europe and Asia on public art, video projections, sculptural commissions and cultural exchange projects. Along with her solo art practice, Shae works with artists, arts organisations, sound designers and artisans to develop innovative creative projects.

Shae is a current resident studio artist at Yonder Art Space.
