Prosper de Roos makes films, audioworks, photographic work and writes. Non-fiction and crossovers.
Prosper investigates the dividing line between human and non-human. The lumpy knot of man, society, nature and technology. Current works focus on listening, to each other, the world around us and to heterotopia, places that defy normal logic.
