Quarantine Dream House Machine (Gal Cohen)



Artist’s Statement:

Quarantine Dream House Machine

QDHM is a project initiated while in quarantine. A digital series of mixed media works of imagined houses based on people’s descriptions of their dream houses. QDHM is based on alternative imagined present, in which people find themselves closed in their current houses without any mobility nor choice, isolated from loved ones due to social distancing and pandemic risks. It is a virtual invitation for people to imagine and share with me descriptions of their house of dreams. The descriptions can be highly descriptive or minimalistic. Then I envision it as digital paintings which I share back in social network platforms (Instagram, Facebook). This project is a dialoug framed in time for the unknown duration of the quarantine, when we all experience similar emotions of loneliness, anxieties, uncertainty, while at the same time we have the mental space to imagine a different reality, not only from the current one, but from the pre Covid-19 as well.
