The title of my piece is “With Your Head In The Clouds”
It is about the tyranny of busy and in search of a daydream nation.
I will show a video installation of some 50 people daydreaming projected on the ceiling with 5 projectors. As well as a live camera anyone can stand in front of and be projected up with the other dreamers. I will have one of my walking BB-Q’s and will be cooking food on for you all at the opening.
Turns out daydreaming is good for you.
Curated by Chris Johanson, this group exhibition focuses on established and emerging artists who have had to adjust their artmaking practice due to changes in their life condition, such as chronic illness, pollution, detainment, or other experiences that have altered their perceptive and creative abilities.
