Tangling dreams 2017

Metal, coloured thread on bobbins, 100 x 100 x 300cm, 2017

Initially drawing on a study of similarities in dreaming within my family this piece explores the perception of chance in our conscious and unconscious states of being. The man hole cover plays on the surreality of dreamworlds by introducing an imaginary location. The performative element embraces chance since the bobbins are dropped through the cover at random and left in whichever way they come to halt. Their movement continues through accidental or deliberate interaction with the audience.
