Caterpillar Dreams is an investigation into the images of childhood imagination and memory as a manipulator of space. The installation creates an environment for lighthearted, extravagant, indulgent, and theatrical meeting of parodies. Expressed through the costumed persona of a caterpillar and its symbolic reading as transformative, the animal costume acts as a negotiator between the adult and the child; while the maquettes of buildings and houses are built from memory, and function as spatial sketches of insular spaces. Caterpillar Dreams aims to create a space where personal memories can manifest into self-parody and the comedy of this can reconcile with its underlying tragedy.
