Perchance to Dream

Michael Peoples's avatar Michael Peoples

'Perchance to Dream' is one of a series of collective masses or oceans, reflecting on the idea that 'one drop creates an ocean'. This one in particular approaches the idea of food as memory. Foods hold an important status in our lives, certain things we eat or smell trigger certain memories. Some foods have developed an iconic status, a collective memory as does the circus peanut. The subtext of this work derives from the fondness that his grandfather had for these and is an homage to his memory.
