Hi Everybody!
Invited by Keith Rocka to partake in this here group show, Cognitive Dissonance, exhibiting video works at Cottage Home Chinatown from 6-9pm on February the 18th.

My Capitalist Dreams/Green is a public video installation and performance piece at Cottage Home Chinatown, where for a duration of 2hours during the opening, I plan to sleep inside a green-screen sculpture constructed out of muslin fabric and a coleman green sleeping bag.

While, asleep out front the gallery in this green-screen sculpture --inside I've invited an array of video and performance artists, as-well-as family, working with the theme of dream-space and fantasy to construct dreams for my reality.  Acting not as curator of overall exhibitions, but within those 2hours artists and participants are invited to interact with the green-screen and submit short videos and performances as dreams to be projected in the space.

Participants are invited, if interested, to use images of me found online, via Facebook as material and for keying --but are not bound. They had the freedom of their imaginations except that vids and performances have to be short, roughly 5min-8mins; dreams are not that long.

Andy Robert.
