Floating Away in My Dream (5 pics)

Working under the name Littlewhitehead, Glasgow-based artists Craig Little and Blake Whitehead mysteriously place a child high up onto the ceiling of a room. If that’s not strange enough – the child’s head is stuck in a bunch of floating balloons! "Within our work there is a strong connection between the reality that surrounds us and some kind of escapism to a made-up world," says the artist duo. "This made-up world is the construct of a dialogue between the two of us, which infuses scenes from an encyclopedic range of references, from video nasties, to current events, and subconscious musings. “It is in that world, unlike the one we actually inhabit, where we can fulfill these sinister desires. Sentient Orbs pictures a child rising to the ceiling, subsumed by a bouquet of balloons, transferring the delights of pleasure and kindness to suggestions of greed and malice.”
