WAKE UP: Becoming Carol Brown

In Spring of 2009, Carol Brown witnessed a puzzling change within herself. The partitions of her mind fell away and she could no longer tell where she ended and the next person began. She felt connected beyond the internet’s wildest dreams and a carpet of imaginary solutions rolled out beneath her.

In Autumn of 2012, Tape Projects upholsters Carol’s mental furniture into a nine part mini-series. Step on set and cast yourself into the oblique melodrama that is the party within.

Join in on set with episodes going live from 6-10pm each evening of the festival and reruns daily from 12 -4pm.

Episode 1: Aniticipating Anticipation
Episode 2: Receiving Transmissions
Episode 3: Carol Tears It Up
Episode 4: Carol Re-bakes Old Ideas
Episode 5: The Party Within The Party Within
Episode 6: Carol Gets Some Perspective
Episode 7: A Christmas Carol
Episode 8: Cliff-hangover

About the Artist

The Tape Projects (TAPR) artists in Wake Up are Michael Prior, Zoe Scoglio, Caroline Anderson and Matthew O’Shannessy. TAPR members have a curiosity for exploration, collaboration and learning with experimental practices both inside and outside the gallery. TAPR also provides a collaborative support structure for those who share their ethic. Recent explorations include blindfolded bus trips, oracle consulting, toasty eating ceremonies, porthole construction, ritualistic aerobics, group-dreaming, and pseudo-scientific game playing.
