"So moving, transformative. Smiles from the inside."
 "Such a wonderful and important concept."
"What a lovely idea. Felt like a warm hug."

"So humbling. Moved to tears (nice tears!)"


Rose Turtle Ertler's Complimentary Caravan is an investigation into the power of words through an

ongoing collection of audio and written compliments collected from different towns.

Step inside the cosy custom-built caravan and bathe in a soundtrack of heartfelt compliments

recorded from your local community.

Relax and enjoy an immersive experience of relentless gratitude and encouragement.



This project is not limited to the caravan.

An alternative space can be used if it better suits an event.

Also, Rose has a collection of over 1,000 written compliments which can be used to create an immersive installation in a

variety of spaces along with audio of recorded compliments, video projection and atmospheric lighting.


Rose is currently creating a new video projection work called 'Complimentary Lane' for the Enlighten Projection Festival

in Bendigo coming up in August.  The work will be projected onto a brick wall in a laneway. (Photo below)
