Jeff Bird's sound piece added yet another sensory element to the exhibit..I liked how this was included as it was an alternative medium for the visitor to experience the subject matter of the exhibit. Many of you may agree, often dreams can be accompanied by sounds, speaking words sometimes which can be deciphered, but at other times may not be understood at all but are just merely echos and faint or loud audible sounds. For me there is often music present in my dreams and that is why I found Jeff's piece particularly resonating with me. Jeff's sound composition allows us to experience the exhibit at a whole other level, immersed as if you were in a dream....which includes stories, sound vibrations, screams and music...very much like my dream experiences.
Congratulations to Marilyn for the concept, the committment and passion to making this happen for so many local artists. It truly is a lovely show.
On the flip side, as with some dreams they can turn into nightmares, right????...Which is somewhat that surreal feeling of being in a nightmare that I found myself in....but more about that personal experience on my next blog post. Until then enjoy the exhibit if you get a chance to see it...it is fabulous. The 'Dream' exhibit runs until July 20th at the Elora Centre for the Arts, Minarovich Gallery.
