HALLUCINATIONS // Week 5 Reception

 

Following a fresh-leaf indigo dyeing workshop with artist Rowland Ricketts at Workshop Residence in the Dogpatch, please join us back at StoreFrontLab for a reception for the artists of Week 5: Hallucinations.

Michelle Blade, Shannon Bronson, Desiree Holman, Ali Naschke-Messing, Carlos Perez, William Tyler, and Amber Jean Young.

Based on the Oliver Sacks bookHallucinations explores altered states produced by sensory deprivation, intoxication, injury, meditation, or simply, curiosity. Hallucinations take many forms: visual apparitions, embodied physical sensations, auditory phantoms, geometric shapes and color fields. Hallucinatory experience has largely informed various cultural underpinnings: from spiritual inquiry and mystical narrative, to artistic expression and oral history.
