Rose Finn-Kelcey’s work has embraced an extraordinarily wide variety of media and styles. Her moving/animated messages in public spaces began in the 1970s; most recently four vending machines were installed in the Millennium Dome, London to display ‘prayers’ through LED technology. House Rulesis an endless stream of prohibitions: “words which appear to come from nowhere and go nowhere”. The effect is hypnotic, but every so often the voice of dissent interrupts. “The world of ‘no’ is contested, but unstoppable. House Rules can be left running while you get on with your life”.
