Projection on handmade papier-mâché masks, 2016
Heartbeats. Six sleepers — fragments of their absent originals, their thoughts clouded with dreams — call out from the void. Their life-rhythms slip in and out of harmony as they shift from one plane of dreaming to the next, alone in their sleep one moment, their thoughts entwined with another’s the next, weaving their dreams in unison. And silent in their midst, the seventh sleeper breathes.
Dreamless is inspired by the beauty of sleep, of solitary and simultaneous dreaming, of the aspects of the self that are born and die in these worlds, and of things endless and sublime.
Showcased at the Parsons Immersive Media Symposium in February 2017.
