Common Collective (Simon Brothers, Luke Mistruzzi, Nick Kuepfer, and Mark Preston): Train Dreams

May 27 to September 10
Opening reception: Friday, May 26, 7-9pm
Curator: Arin Fay

Train Dreams is an experimental three-channel video installation that examines the nature of memory and time by exploring history through railway culture. The exhibition includes animation, regional and international new and archival video footage, and an original sound design. It does not unfold in a linear narrative process, but instead through a sequence of enactments, dissipations, and transformations. Train Dreams engages the viewer in a visceral process of sensory oscillation and plays with sense perceptions; creating experiences of scenes, shapes, spaces, colours, textures, and sounds, that blend together to form ambiguous impressions of the past.
