Dream Repeater: Utopia

Dream Repeater: Utopia
Turchin Center for the Visual Arts, Boone, NC

For the Dream Repeater project, I'm collecting dreams from other people and then repeating them in various ways. I remake the dreams, I retell them, I reenact them and I invite others to adopt them.

This repetition features a two-room installation with sculpture, prints, and video projection. On opening night, the theater group Machine performed in the space in response to the dream, on February 7th at 7 pm.

Also, a concurrent group show opened at the Nth Gallery, with works by Rachel Ballard, Joe Bigley, Karen Cleveland and Vicky Grube.

brother video still

In the dream there’s a baseball field, and on the other side is Utopia, where everyone has enough money for whatever they need. My brother and his friends, they get some sticks and go over to Utopia and they beat people up.
