The Pillow Series IV, duration 9' 13", Bird-Jones & Heald (2014).
The Pillow Series was a collection of artworks created over several years by myself and Chris Bird-Jones. Chris is an artist and educator working primarily in glass. As a visual artist and researcher my praxis is in the media of video, installation and performance. Collectively we are known as Bird-Jones & Heald and are based in Wales, UK.
The Pillow Series explored dreams, the unconscious and the invisibility of time (physical, spiritual and imaginary) from a feminist art perspective; incorporating contemporary technologies and scientific dialogues.
Researching how to make the invisibility of time visible, combining glass, film and sound the artworks questioned what sleep and the body means cross culturally and in different spaces. The textural glass casing houses the moving image further separating the dreamer from the viewer.
