Game is defined as adopting goals, rules, challenges and interactions but as the philosopher, Ludwig Wittgenstein claims, games can be a misconstrued meaning of language and the mind.

Because we misunderstand language we use indirect communication, thought experiments and mind games to get a sense of one-upmanship to empower or demoralize. What extremes can we go to for feeling recognition, wanting, acceptance and achievement?

Featured artists explore the work ethic of game playing considering tactics, strategy and philosophical investigations as well as aesthetic work which deals with layout, intrigue and an appeal to take part. The exhibition includes, video, film, photography, installation, interventions, painting and drawing.

'Catching the Dreamscape.'

Mixed Media  - A child’s hoop and knitted puppets and playthings.

Yorkshire, UK. 

CATCHING THE DREAMSCAPE is based on the concept of a Dream-catcher made by indigenous North American people. Through this piece I invert this concept by inviting the viewer to construct and therefore control the dream idea, creating a visual language for the dreamer…I am interested to investigate the types of dreams people want to share with others – will they be peaceful or sinister nightmares? Will my viewers try to empower or demoralize the dreamscape?
