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. These issues, and subsequent conflict, stem from the observance of both the mundane and the extraordinary in everyday life; a mirror­image of our collective struggle within our 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.
