Dave's Avilion denotes the start of a new series exploring predominantly subterranean landscapes, exploring duality and sublimity.
Initially Dave's Avilion was created with Glastonbury in mind (and subliminally probably Glastonbury Tor), emerging from research and concepts facilitating 'deep work' in order to innovate, and in creating environments that cultivate intense focus and the facilitation of deep work (in relation to neuroplasticity).
The work may also mark the start of a collaborative project.
Resonant wording, themes are: "... when I was a child I had a fever, my hands were bright red... this is just not how I am. I have become uncomfortably numb". A play on Pink Floyds 'Comfortably Numb' lyrics. Which relates to the artists childhood when she had a fever with bright red hands, in part contrasting this experience with the nature of adulthood.
