Originally from Michigan, Dawn Roe is a Professor of Studio Art at Rollins College in Winter Park, Florida. Her work uses photography, videography, and film modalities to create art that she hopes will increase social understanding of our environment.
In her ongoing project titled "DESCENT ≈ An Atlas of Relation," she explores the enduring relationship between fish and the planet, spanning millions of years as they contend with the constant battle for survival. Through this project, she contemplates the coexistence of human and non-human entities amidst the ever-changing global climate.
