Solo but Not Alone;
A deep dive of Low Resolution 

On the occasion of Miami Art Week 2021, Swampspace was thrilled to feature the work of young
and prodigious female artist Ruth Burotte. In her first solo exhibition, it becomes evident the
complex and layered works her peculiar mind manifests can transport the viewer through
multiple sections of our culture. Heavily influenced by Hip-Hop culture, Japanese Manga,
Graffiti, and Comic Book illustration, we can see how the effects of global influences can enter
the minds and hearts of people across all social and financial strata.

Low Resolution


  1. a firm decision to do or not to do something.

  2. the quality of being determined or resolute.

  3. the conversion of something abstract into another form.

  4. measures the number of pixels in a digital image or display.

It started with a thesis...

In the summer of 2021, I showcased my thesis which presented an installation of an immersive visual environment with overstimulating artwork.

The concept in hand is based on the focus and point of view of a girl who suffers an accident and is then experiencing unexplainable events that occur through her surroundings. The different delusions she sees can be connected through the themes of living in a culture where individuals may feel desensitized in an overstimulated environment just like how young generations live through the age of information.

Having the “Low Resolution” references to different contexts of the definition such as having little to no aspirations to do something or lack of purpose, the resolution of an display with low DPI/PPI, that gives a sense of blurriness and graininess to screens, and the reference to the gradual process converting uncertainty into abstracted forms of ideas with no sense of physicality.

The instillation was displayed for the New World School of the Arts BFA exhibition in the Moore building at the Miami Design District.
