Incandescence – Dreams are real as long as they exist

Incandescence is a collaborative installation by video artists Sam Sutcliffe and Marlon Diamond. Using video, audio and photography the exhibition examines the aspirational side of human behaviour.  The installation does not limit itself to age, race or gender.

Everyones contribution is unique and valid, we all dream and aspire whether attainable or not.  Human aspirations are a vague, fantastical, ambivalent and dream-like facet of identity yet are a very true part of peoples™ personalities.  Incandescence will question what it is that drives us to aspire and how do social constraints affect this very human phenomenon?The conception of an idea is always a symbiotic relationship between artist and viewer.  Through anonymous contributions Incandescence hopes to explore identity, showing a pure yet ambiguous facet of who people are without limitations; not all they are but who they essentially are in themselves without external input. By using anonymous contributors Incandescence also is an attempt to explore identity without the preconceptions that come when first seeing or meeting a person, identity at its purest and most unaffected. Even if we consider ourselves to be non-judgemental we still subconsciously create preconceptions in our mind when we first watch something or meet someone.

Both artists are currently studying at the London College for Music & Media.
