Dreams & demons
– An Interactive Installation
“Dreams & demons is an invitation for the community to share its dreams and demons, hopes and fears. This interactive installation is a platform where dreams can be revealed to inspire others; a platform where demons can be voiced and released.” –Jessica b Watson
Dreams & demons is my first interactive artwork in Australia and I am inviting you to participate. Each dream or demon will remain anonymous and be hand embroidered onto strips of fabric. The artwork will develop as each strip of embroidered text is ceremoniously woven into the artwork.
I have chosen the inaugural Avalon Art Carnival to instigate this project as it is the place where I grew up. After 15 years based in Gothenburg, Sweden I returned to Avalon four years ago and found the return to be challenging -stirring up a multitude of thoughts, demons and forgotten dreams. Through conversations with friends, family and strangers I have found I am not alone in the thoughts of what has been, what is to come, and what is truly important on the grand scale of life - thus Dreams & demons emerged.
