Do You See What I See? Dreamachine and the Perception Census
Jennifer Crook is the Director of Collective Act, the producers of ‘Dreamachine’ – a one-of-a-kind immersive experience created in collaboration with Turner Prize-winning artists Assemble, Grammy and Mercury nominated composer Jon Hopkins and a team of leading technologists, scientists and philosophers, commissioned by UNBOXED: Creativity in the UK.
Jennifer has nearly two decades of experience creating ambitious and award-winning interdisciplinary commissions across the world in a diverse range of locations, from rooftops to pavements, clifftops to forest floors. She has collaborated with artists including Olafur Eliasson, Danny Boyle, Christo and Jeanne-Claude and Jeremy Deller. From building (and burning) a 72ft community-built temple in a contested interface area set between Protestant and Catholic communities in Northern Ireland, to re-enacting the largest rebellion of enslaved people in US history in the Deep South at a time of deep political and social division, Jennifer has built an international reputation for creating memorable and transformative participatory events that show the very real potential for art to create change.
