Dissociative dialogues

Fleur Summers

Front Gallery
7 Aug 2015–29 Aug 2015
Opening 6.00pm 7 Aug 2015

Daydreaming is a kind of mild dissociation…you forget where you are and what you’re doing…your mind wanders, thoughts bubble up and float by, subconscious plans coalesce, new ideas emerge and problems are solved…

Dissociative Dialogues employs recognisable social objects and processes to encourage physical interaction in novel ways. Everyday activities such a walking promote thinking through mild dissociation. As we rely on procedural memory and suppress active thought, we allow the mind to consider alternate, potentially rhizomatic, ideas

Dissociative Dialogues combines the contemplative activity of lying in a beanbag with the rhythmic activity of pedalling to promote daydreaming.

Whilst the hybrid character of the work is visually interesting, the nature of the work is largely determined by the encounter and response of participants and once activated will create lively and interesting physical and conceptual interactions.
