The power to dream
Telecommunications infrastructure suggests imagination. Side A has at its top-left a communications tower. A form moves in the direction of the building, possibly on a quest. Is it to find answers to existential questions? Who knows? There is the power of human communication. There is power through advanced digital infrastructure—dream on in mixed media. A retrospective from the early 1990’s informs the progression in mixed media as a conceptual basis for an art practice.
Dreams and power
If the conclusion is to dream-on, it begs the question. What is a dream anyway? It may well be the walking state. It is the depiction on the bottom right of side A that completes the arc. The doll figure on the side of a dirt road (embedded photo print) along a hardly used road suggests the dream-like quality. There is also a reference to imagined community. This is fairly relevant given the rise of a new rules based society
Photographic elemental forms
Dream power as a photographic elemental. Taking a leaf out of a Gerry Badger’s notes as a photographer.
The photographer creates or describes a dance with space and time.Contemporary photographers: editors, George Walsh, Colin Naylor, Micheal Held
This quote’s relevance, based on travel, suggests to capture the shots, there is human movement as an outdoor art form. So they travel up a mountain and to remote locations. Badger notes a physical connection to the subject. It seems ordinary in 2021, but Badger made this note in the early last century.
