round the clock dream state
Round the clock dream state presents a complex cycle of grief, rebirth, and euphoria to stage a tale of transformation. Using images and materials of the natural world the installation draws on the principles of alchemy and magic. Nighttime photographs of anemones and mugwort share the walls with other images while a chorus of paper sculptures occupies the middle ground. Certain materials recur: wood, snow, plastic, and colored gems. Pinecones transition into brilliant 3D printed versions, aided by a rose-gold disco ball with whom they share the space. The multiple narratives of the installation function as incantations and promises, evoking our complex present and a possible fabulous future.
Many thanks to Lynne Cooney and Montserrat College of Art for their help realizing this project.
