This is a revised version of Sleep//Dream made for an installation piece at the second annual Sound.Motion show at Ringling College of Art & Design. The sleep and dream imagery is used in conjunction with original poetry read and digitally manipulated by the computer. The installation was titled “Digital Dream” and featured the projected video piece; a reactive audio oscilloscope; taxidermy of coyotes, a fox, and a deer; a still life of vase and artificial flowers, crushed velvet, and an original painting.
This is a short experimental performance video that I made for a class exercise. The music was created with a broken violin + digital editing.
“…leaving only the growing terror of nothing to think about.”
Documentation of performance piece executed on October 29th, 2010. A shamanic antagonist reads excerpts from TS Eliot’s ‘East Coker’ in a busy elevator at an art school. The reactions in the video are representative of the response I got. I have to say that I was disappointed that I didn’t get any positive creative reactions to the piece; but what happened with the performance turned into an interesting study of the atmosphere that my college has towards experimental art…

This video is part of an installation piece meant to be projected into a corner. It was my first experience with putting photographs to motion and working with sound and video.
The images explore the process of falling asleep and beginning to dream. The sleep panel of the video reflects the physical, outside world while the dream panel reflects the images playing through the character’s subconscious as the dream state begins.
