This audiovisual digital art installation came together as a reflection by Purcell, Many Bears and Big Snake on themes from the fall 2021 exhibition RELATIONS: Diaspora and Painting, with contributions to their work from University of Calgary students Jeremy Bobosky, Maci Jordan and Laurencine Saddleback.

TIPI_LOOPS.dreamwaves is an exploration of one’s relation to place, and how the individual experience becomes constellations through the synchronicities that brought us together. We find our place through the land that nourishes us. We find our place through the stories and ceremonies that brought us here. We find our place through our dreams and the synchronicities that act like signposts—the guidance from our ancestors. The dreamcatcher, the spiderweb, and the stories in the sky; they remind us where we come from and where we ought to go. They remind us that we are all connected.

LISTEN HERE to Kaitlyn Purcell and Joey Big Snake talk on CJSW with Peter Oliver.
