Astral Traveller

"Self Storage"In association with Laurie Anderson and Brian Eno
Produced by Artangel at Acorn Storage Wembley 3.4.95-7.5.95

I made this work while I was a Painting MA student at the Royal College of Art.

In this piece, I lay submerged and snorkelling in water at the top of a wooden vessel. The vessels dimensions were related to my bodily dimensions, the height equalling mine. I wore a set of pyjamas made to look a little like hospital wear. A continuous water stream dripped into the pool, circulated from the pool itself.

The artist was a preserved specimen deep in the labyrinth of a self storage facility, dreaming and being reflected on the ceiling. Influenced by early space travel, sitting still but travelling great distances.
