About The Artist
Influenced by her own experiences with sleep paralysis, insomnia, and lucid dreams, Kirsten’s work ventures into the depths of the subconcious mind.. With underlying themes of mental health, time, and mortality, Kirsten’s work reveals the seemingly mirror reflection between reality and our dreams, exploring the ways in which life experiences, whether positive or negative, can be examined or deconstructed as we sleep. Through combinations of distorted imagery, ambiguous sounds, and other sensory stimulations, Kirsten creates ambiences and sensations that are both personal to herself, yet unnervingly familiar to others. From the darkness we see as we stare up at our ceilings before falling asleep, to the mysterious imaginings we endure as we dream, Kirsten’s work aims to explore and share the universal human experience of dreaming, and the surreal experiences that the subconscious mind can take us.
