‘What a great concept!” Alan Dearling tunes in and drops out in ‘The Dreaming Room’.
A soundspace, ambient vibes and alternately edgy, quirky stuff.
Bathed in immersive luminescent lights, enshrouded in re-cycled creations from Rachel Rea and Immortal Bloom. ‘Immortal Bloom’ is an artistic exploration, working in recycling and up-cycling of disposable resources.

From Rachel Rea, we learn that, “Immortal Bloom aims to spread awareness of the unrecognised potential in seemingly obsolete resources and re-birthing them to create objects of beauty: transforming an obsolete object into a visually desirable spectacle. Questioning inherent values and societal beliefs surrounding the production, consumption and definition of beauty and luxury whilst redefining, re-examining, and re-evaluating consumerist ideals.”
“Our name and inspiration derives from the very objects we have been transforming, themes of sustainability and regenerative processes. Through our research, we came across an immortal being living in our oceans: Turritopsis dohrnii. It is the most philosophically and biologically curious entity of those we have encountered through our research, and is the embodiment of sustainability. Turritopsis dohrnii is capable of transforming into the infant stage (polyp form) into its mature form (medusa stage) and back again at its choosing. A grouping of these profound creatures is known as a ‘bloom’. Naturally these principles have morphed into an analogy for creativity, rejuvenation and artistic growth.”
