The lights go down on the stream of life and you enter the deeper place of universal consciousness, uploading what we call ‘our dreams’. You cross the threshold of a house, free from your five senses. It is not a house you know however the sensation that this is your home is inextricable.
Something altogether unknown shimmers across your body-free perceptions and you no longer are giving a story; you are receiving. Scenes and emotions and figures that you do not recognise, yet are distinctly familiar, begin to play out. Through someone else’s blueprint, the world is shown to you.
As you dream you are uploading your experiences to the Universe, like a Secret Agent reporting back to their Spy Agency. You are within the house of another Dreamer; the wires have crossed, and now you walk within their memory, dreaming their dream.
The playground story-board this exhibition inhabits is inspired by the late Carl Sagan’s quote ‘We are a way for the Universe to know itself’ mixed with the lyrical question ‘When we fall asleep, where do we go?’ from Billie Eilish.
What is the nature of an interconnected web of consciousness, a cosmic hive mind as experientially individualised happenings?
