Floating Dreams is a three-dimensional video installation. Boxes appear to be floating in space, and they become an architectural representation of a physical and mental space as a video montage is projected on them. Life appears in these contained spaces — they become buildings, aquariums, skies, and private rooms. Each transition recalls a sense of collective memory, history, and dreams. Many of the visuals represent personal isolation within the larger public realm. Ideas of public versus private and voyeurism that are a part our present-day society come into play. I want to bring my viewers into the space, to be encompassed by visuals, similarly as in a dream, but my hope is that they will have their own interpretations of this video installation based on their own past experiences.
