A week in Figments
31 March 2020
For the past few months I’ve been sending my previous night’s dream in a personal message to people subscribed to my free dreams service*. It’s an everyday job, the automatic yet manual unraveling of my life via WhatsApp in Figments: accidental truths and fictions, weird intimate unreal and ordinary, like dreams.
The daily feed of figments joins other collections in my work (archives of passwords, titles, time records, waiting rooms, faith objects...), all of them based on the storytelling of common information, and on the materiality of language as a means or an end.
Here’s a week in Figments:
Belly-up (2020), concrete, clay, metal. Exhibited at Not in Time, One Thoresby Street.
