Cara Lynch
Dreamin'
Video, 3:22 minutes
Dreamin' is a performative installation documented through video, featuring a singing, dancing vase that performs Dreamin' by Johnny Burnette. While this song speaks to matters of the heart, of pining and longing, the lyrics also communicate a larger cultural portrait of America: a picture in which dreams and reality are not in alignment and we are consumed by our own desires. The work offers a romantic vision which spoils, corrupts, and eats away at itself, ultimately collapsing.
