Mixed-Media Immersive Installation
Audiences were ushered into a suspended hallway between two buildings with 22 miniature theatres within its walls leading to a fire-escape door, one person at one time. Within the space, the sound of hypnotic utopian birds played as lights on the floor aisle raced back and forth in hypnotic waves. Within each miniature theatre lined with black suede, were hand-made and found sculptural objects representing multiple material desires; each a promise of an intangible reality; a paradise beyond the walls.
Caught between the scent of another unseen world, this space of 'willing suspension' held its audiences in the realm of an unending desire for the intangible American dream seduced by a sensory hypnosis leading nowhere.
