The artwork website states: 'Rosnes Bench' is an idea developed for the vast and diverse landscape of Dumfries and Galloway. To experience the 'Rosnes Benches' we have to go into this land, into nature and allow the artworks to challenge how we see and perceive this world – usually from eye level, usually looking forward and down and usually with the ideas and methods that become habitual to us and matter of fact. The benches slow us down, create stillness, change our viewpoint and help us to remain in the moment and be part off the immediate context that surrounds us. 'Rosnes' is 'Sensor' spelled backwards. Interacting with them helps us to contemplate life in a 'sensory' manner.
