Favorite line of poetry: “At the still point of the turning world. Neither flesh nor fleshless;/ neither from nor towards; at the still point, there the dance is.” —T. S. Eliot
Current city: London (Editor’s Note: Rosaline documented her Tokyo travels for Constellation)
Favorite Tokyo sight: “I spent my last hours in Tokyo in a room on the 35th floor of a hotel. I could see the whole city. From a distance, the bustle and the flashing neon lights became still and serene. It was beautiful and the perfect way to end my stay.”
Writer, photographer, and editorial assistant at Outdoor Voices
Current city (and hometown): New York, NY
One woman whom she considers to be a role model: The late artist and video game designer Theresa Duncan has been one of my longest standing role models and influences. I began playing her video games for girls (e.g. Smarty, Chop Suey and Zero Zero) on my family's Power Macintosh 5000 in the '90s, and the world she invented for women has been forever ingrained in my brain.
Current city: Los Angeles
Song you play when you want to feel fully yourself: “Strawberry Letter 23” by The Brothers Johnson, especially with my headphones on as I’m shimmying down the grocery store aisles.
