SuperNature/City: Nature and The Changing Cityscape
March – May 2022
Susan Supercharged presents a micro art installation, for this Stratford hotel collaboration. Creating a fragmented dreamscape and readymade landscape, she explores the world of disjointed dreams and hints of something cryptically beautiful. Making readymades and plaster castings with historical items dredged from the Thames, (some as old ancient Roman) embedded alongside glass artefacts. Making the familiar/unfamiliar. Bringing the ancient into activation with the modern, many of the artworks will be available as NFTs, and in Augemented Reality as well.
