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.

Ingredients/ Materials: SPS prison bunk bed, five condemned doors, three tv sets with cameras of 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.
