NEW DREAM37 arose within the context of the current political climate in the US. After dreaming up many iterations of responses, I concluded that the best way to be a part of the solution was to loosely delineate a fluid social space where participants could form bonds with each other. Indeed the highlight of the exhibition for me was getting to know four other women as we sat in the center of the piece together.
Surrounded by 12.5' high drapes of reflective material, red light and a soundtrack composed of field recordings of 30 people uttering the sacred Sanskrit syllable, "AH," 37 times, one can lose herself in the intermediate state of this interdimensional womb. "...it's as if the LaMonte Young Dream House was reborn as a sacred brothel..."
Materials: 4 channel sound, reflective material, red light, carpeting.
