Stevens, Grant William (2009) The wandering. [Visual Artwork]
In this video, text sourced from dream description websites is combined into a narrative. The words floating against an animated cloud background are set to a stock music track.
This work examines the nature of consciousness and identity in a contemporary context. It mixes the languages of dream description and cinematic narrative. By extending on some of Nicolas Bourriaud’s ideas around “postproduction” and the creative and critical strategies of ‘editing’, this work draws attention to the ways popular culture and private anxieties continually mix together in our experiences of lived and imagined realities.
