Milton Keynes Dreaming by Emily Campbell

I was commissioned by Milton Keynes Gallery to work with Young Mums in Milton Keynes to create an artwork for their music festival.  I worked with a group of truly creative young people and story teller Philippa Tipper to write creative texts about dreams.  I liked the idea of transporting the galleries concrete floor to use as the basis of the artwork.  I wanted it to look like it had been somehow dropped; the concrete broken and cracked allows the images from the participants dreams then spill out to create a massive floor piece. To create this piece I photographed cracks in the floor of a house I was renovating and then cloned the edges using photoshop onto the  concrete.  In the two galleries below you can see the installed work and also the texts that I have illustrated.
