Artist Statement: A highly accurate re-creation from an ongoing series entitled, "Watching My Moves" originally envisioned during recurring REM dreams of the artist. These Nintendo Entertainment System video game screenshots of women were created using similar readymade Lego pieces from the dreams in which they were conceived, exploring spiritual ascension. The upwards stacking of Lego symbolizes the links between Heaven and Earth and the union of the divine within the viewer toward—"Atma," the inseparable ray of the Universe and one's true self. In this state, the dreamer may tap into this higher intelligence to develop a more enlightened perspective on world matters.
