A Piece of the Dream

I’ve based my artist multiple off of a concept I hope to bring to fruition in the future. I want to create a gallery space where people can walk through and feel as if they’re completely immersed in an ethereal dream. This would be done using lighting, video and more. It would be an experience that could only be fully understood by going to the gallery or museum.

In the video (see link), I’m shining a light through the piece and onto the ceiling to get the dream-like effect around my room. Theoretically, the visuals seen here are only a minor fraction compared to the experience of “The dream”.

I created the multiple for those who have gone through the dream and want to continue the experience in their own way, while also making the experience more accessible for those who are unable to go through the dream themselves. It would be made out of some of the materials used in the dream and would be sold at the gift shop or online.


Portrait of a Tree

Lately, I’ve found my thoughts to be absorbed by the idea of life process, transformation, and aging. Regardless of how my image changes I hope to hang on to the unique traits that make me, me.

I found these pieces of wood that have been heavily processed to the point where they look nothing like their original form. Using a wood burner I found the slight remaining wood grain pattern on the pieces and made it visible again.

My hope for this piece is to show that throughout process and transformations we still stay the same in some ways.
