Lessons in Pipe Dreaming and How to Facilitate Future Living
(Installation at La Centrale Galerie Powerhouse in Montreal, June 2015)
This project provides a series of hacked together workshop spaces that belong to a mother and young daughter team where sense and nonsense prevail. The “idea rooms” where fantasies are born, transform hoarded cheap new material into environments where form and imagery create visceral stimuli for change. This presents a space, or a series of small spaces where the conference meets the playground. It provides an imaginative immersive environment through digital photography and sculpture and installation, creating an alternative universe, both suggestive and actual - a fantastic space that speaks to collaboration, possibility and play.
These spaces for dreaming and facilitating change appear necessary for upholding freedom, creativity and wonder in a future geologically, politically and socioeconomically uncertain.
