Sometimes I Feel More Awake When I'm Asleep

Exhibition of a dream-like journey using the exploration of a series of rooms in a top floor flat.

This multi disiplinery, participatory, expereintial exhibition involved -climbing steps, looking out of the window with binoculars, opening and closing repeated doors, discovering hidden reclaimed rooms, encountering unfamiliar objects, watching shadows on CCTV* and hearing the live sounds of the pigeons nesting behind the walls.

Materials: SPS prison bunk bed, five condemned doors, three TV monitors, cameras  trained on live areas of nature, CCTV room of various moss collected from forestry land, a statue of a sheep, 100 metres printed image of sheep, a pair of binoculars, a nest of live pigeons and sound system.

* CCTV cameras were trained on secret corners in nature- watching trees and grasses in the sunlight and a sun-drenched pathway.Video footage to be added.

Moss was collected with permission from Forestry Commission and from sustainable sources.

Art space Inverness August 2012.

Door Jam
A performance piece: 4 doors in a small corridor, which swing in opposite direction and can't be opened at the same time. To move through them, they require the participants to create a system to open and close each door individually and stand intimately close while they close the door behind so to be able to open the next door.
