'What Rose has got is the focus and persistence to see a notion into a concept, to foster an idea into something that can be explicated, could only be—realized through the use of not only audio recordings but video, text, performance, exhibition, installation and a methodical, almost maniacal, collecting of sources...Rose has been, and continues to be, a forward thinking innovator who feels no particular debt to the reasonable.' Kurt Gottschalk
