DREAMS FOR THE FUTURE
Three large screens printed with images of the Isle of Wight in England are arranged to surround the viewer in Dreams for the Future.
A portal to the other side of the world is activated. Artists Nicola Haines Ramsay and Corinna Haines say their work is “A commentary on leaving one’s place of origin to start a new life in another land, on the desire for a prosperous life in a place where one’s dreams can be realised. The installation is an invitation to stand among projected images of a homeland, acknowledging the aspirations, fears and cultural beliefs that contribute to form future landscapes." Carisbrooke Castle is featured with the nearby town of Newport, serviced by a river that leads to the sea, while the surrounding landscape is farmland. Comparably, Brick Bay Farm is also located by the sea and renowned for Brick Bay House, a remarkable piece of architecture by Noel Lane accentuated by a giant brick tower.
