Aimee Haldane (she/her)
From diary entries to dreams, I observe escapism fantasies. I am interested in translating the worlds of the mind in to reality, as the concept of them co-existing fascinates me and informs my practice.
Using processes such as material play and digital forms, I enjoy shaping participatory engaged worlds which come together as but not limited to installations with inclusivity and imagination at their core.
“Hidden worlds and stories are all around us. Sometimes we understand them, sometimes we don’t have to. In the Imagi-Nation live creatures in their homes. You can find them if you look close enough.”

What Dreams Are Made Of
What Dreams Are Made Of is a social art project created during my artist placement with Art in Hospitals.
I created boxes of sculptural materials and inspiration to highlight the importance of escapism through art. The concept of the box is inspired by dreams; dreams are visual metaphors created by our daily encounters, they help people process their days through endless possibilities of imagination. The sculpture boxes consist of everyday materials to inspire hospitals patients and care home residents to explore their daily lives from a new perspective, and take a breath from the world by playing and exploring new materials.
