About the work
'Dream Collage' is made up of a series of woven tapestries from my series 'Dream Weaving.' The presentation format intends to mimic the often overwhelming way in which vivid dreams are viewed, in my case, with several prominent dreams fighting to be at the forefront of my mind. The works share common themes, including extreme weather, digital anxiety and references to climate disasters. This arrangement of works also acts as one of the initial experiments for a future large scale installation, breaking away from the standard presentation of works and how placement and arrangement add to the overall reading of the works.
