Frozen Dream is a partial reconstruction/model/facsimile of a thought/idea experienced through the fading out phase from a lucid dream state to waking consciousness, an attempt to express in crude material form an exploration of the mechanism through which the universe manifests from void into the realities perceived by conscious beings. During the ‘fading out’ phase the dreamer becomes aware of time and motion slowing down like frames of a motion picture (distinct frame by frame) and pixelated experience when the lucid dream dissolves into the waking state. This experience recalls scenes in the movie ‘The Matrix’ who’s creators claim to have been inspired by lucid dreams.
The faces of the cubes/pixels in Frozen Dream take on/approximate the colour of their background in an attempt to create a kind of dematerialisation and blending of the pixels with their surrounding reality. The pixel/cubes are also positioned to imitate random movement, jostling, appearance and disappearance in an attempt to describe the quantum vacuum (postulated by contemporary physicists) where subatomic particles ‘fizz’ in and out of existence and are said to make up most of the physical matter we perceive.
