  • Spectrum House Salon & Photography  presents “Vital Fluids” by Seb Barnett. Seb’s imagery explores the space between reality and fantasy in a contemporary context.

Fish has orchestrated the fourth installation in the series to allow the congregants of the temporary temple to engage in disengaging. Fish’s work integrates elements of sacred ritual, religious study, multi­sensory saturation and deprivation, and stresses an emphasis on survival and necessity.The Alice has been transformed into an ethereal and challenging experience for the viewer to process the acceptance of death, rebirth, and nothing. All are welcome to come as they are, and leave as they will be.

Childhood is a magical time, one of the things people forget about magical events is they are not defined by traditional ideas of reality. We look back on childhood with rose colored glasses, not always recalling the upset of a world that was unpredictable, chaotic, and unknown. This body of work is an exploration of the terror and beauty of the fantastic reality that is life.
