Unfurling

During my artist residency at Holden Village this past spring (February-March 2013) I created this piece in collaboration with the other artists in residence.

Inspired by a dream.  We created a piece about dreams.  Installation art by Gerri Sayler. Poetry by Kat Smith.

Aided by a village: Music by Philip Kendall, Lighting Design by Ian Leitch, Videography Sean Whalen.

I woke from a dream and a question was asked.  A knot needing to be untied. An idea sparked. A piece created. Living on the edge of dreams.  Waking from them and wondering where reality is.  Grasping at the threads left behind by the dream.  Not sure why I feel the need to do something, just that I must.  Something was glimpsed in the dreaming.  How do we pull that into the waking?
