Jeremiah Ray
Through increasingly improvisational and reactionary performance based work I seek to address issues of communication between individuals as well as how we internalize, interpret, and process both singular and collective experiences. The conflict within communication derives from how we observe both the mundane and extraordinary in everyday life. This is a mirror-image of our own inherent duality -- our equally finite and infinite nature. Symbols culled from dreams, imagery presented through the analysis of the subconscious, are translated into live, temporal work. Sound & video, object and body based improvisational studies, explorations of the physical body through ritualized gestures, etc., bring the awareness of both artist and audience to the present moment and the transformative potential of the seemingly unnoteworthy therein.
