Artist Statement:


    In Reveries and Line Drawings, a projected video piece first shown at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago’s New Blood exhibition, artists Georgia Wall and Nick Bastis offer methods in which stored spatial reveries can be recalled and represented using both analog and digital technologies. The piece posits forms in which spaces can be visualized without being physically present through the use of technology and memory. This process was explored with two participants, who visualized places they had never visited: Rebecca Zorach, an art historian at the University of Chicago, visualized Art & Soul, an experimental art center founded by a street gang and the MCA in the Lawndale neighborhood of Chicago that existed from 1968 to 1972; and Andrew Norman Wilson, an MFA candidate at SAIC, visualized the home of his collaborator in Bangalore, India – he has come to know both the person and the place through the internet.
