Description: When casting hand-made paper into my plaster life-mask, the fibres divided down the center…two halves. Remembering “the value of the happy accident,” I had to create an alternative plan. In sleep, we experience differing levels of consciousness: R.E.M. Sleep is one of them. It involves us completely in an alternative reality. Dreamscape’s painted canvas (behind the mask halves) is replete with transforming faces and figures.
