Post-secular pilgrimage by House of Vnholy and the Unconscious Collective

Artists

  Unconscious Collective   The  Unconscious Collective  was established by David Patman and  Michelle Boyde  in 2014 as an informal collaboration of artists, with expertise and experience in sound, movement, contemporary and digital art and design.  Our work often explores hypnagogic and liminal states such as dreams, visions, reverie and wonder.  Our interest in these states is,  in their significance as a shared experience that may reflect broader social narratives and concerns.
