Michaela Gleave’s multi-media installations present naturally occurring phenomena that test the limits of everyday sensory experience. Utilising the natural elements of cloud and fog contained within incongruously artificial spaces, Persistent Optimism invites the audience to interact with these ephemeral materials. Gleave stages an epistemological enquiry into the relationships we have with our surroundings and the way we come to perceive, understand and ‘know’ the world we live in.
