Ross A Wilson is a self-taught filmmaker who works through science fiction and psychological drama genres with an emphasis on personal transformation. Early in his career he experienced a series of life-altering events including suffering from a stroke and experiencing the tragic death of his sister. His work since has incorporated themes such as memory, loss, and social alienation. Through ideas rooted in physics he explores the need for certainty in a world science describes as fundamentally uncertain, often using experimental practical effects that modify light to produce ‘grounded’ dream-like moments to question ideas around mental health and explore the ephemeral nature of identity. Utilising film and niche digital mediums, his films feature motifs of industrial and ‘psychological landscapes’ in which the characters have become subsumed, a modern take on early Chinese nature paintings that also draws upon issues such as class, climate change and post-capitalism.
