Dream Minds, July 23, 2012 to July 22, 2013
Videography and Edit by On The Real Film
I interviewed one person every Monday about a sleep dream from 2012 to 2013. I wrote a poem based on their sleep dream that the participant was given. Each participant received a painting which is inspired by The Queen of Luxuria’s costume. This project has been created to investigate the subconscious realm and explore the connections between our subconscious reality and our reality. This project documents the fears, anxieties and desires of a diverse range of the population. This project started on July 23rd 2012 and formally opened at the Red Rover Series on July 28th, 2012 at Outer Space Studios. I put myself in different public situations to sign up members of the public. I was invited to participate in the exhibition Private VS Public curated by Tricia Van Eck at 6018North on October 5 through to the 22, 2012.
Four Dream Mind participants were also invited to come perform their dreams on the doorstep every Monday evening throughout the exhibition.
For Children Everywhere, 2013
Life On Stage, 2013
A Taste of Honey, 2012
I was invited to give a lecture at the Cultural Center on April 3rd, 2013 about Multisensory Art Practice and was asked if I could create a performance as people entered the lecture. I invited Dream Mind Participants to write their poems on the pavement and then once inside the lecture invited participants to stand up and read their favorite lines.
A swarm of flies cloud the skies to consume their fate/ I weave a trance around the trees to the lyrical music evaporating the sound of death. (Dream Mind Interview no. 17)
The sacred key of ecstasy and orgasmic health/ Opened the door to everything that is part of me. (Dream Minds Interview No. 21)
