When the moon fell out of orbit
From the Institute for Imagined Futures & Unknown Lands

Mission Gallery, Swansea, Wales

2 June- 15 July 2012

Preview: 7pm Friday 1 June

Manifesting in action, live or documented, Fern Thomas’ process-led and intuitive explorations often take the form of a physical interaction or ‘meeting’ between herself and a place, a dream, a history or another being. Drawn to notions of alchemy, her work explores ideas of transformation through object, text and sound.

Working with the Institute for Imagined Futures & Unknown Lands, Thomas carries out a series of explorations into the images found in our dreams and inner landscapes. Through this engagement she wonders what these images tell of our future and questions what do we do now that the moon has fallen out of or orbit?
