It’s All The Real World

The installation It’s All the Real World transformed my space at the Djerassi Artist Residency into an artwork about the circulation of ideas through collaborative creative process, as experienced in the Dream Vortex. The title asserts the continuity between the physical and virtual worlds. Circling the room were objects and drawings following the transmigration of psychological impulses through images and texts: from the dream image in the dreamer’s mind, to the dream story as told to me, to my drawing, to text code, to the visual image of the dream vortex. The installation tracks the presence of the impulses traveling through the creative process, with artifacts such as notes between collaborators referring to the process by which they become visible.
