Evanescence of a Dream, provides a look into the ethereal and intimate world that Victoria has documented over the past five years, which visualizes the fluid interaction between human consciousness, nature and their mutual impermanence. In 2016, she began filming a series of videos that recorded the starkly different terrains of Iceland, Denmark, Spain, Switzerland, Greece, Italy, Turkey, England and California. In a dream-like narrative of fragmented memories, she combines footage of the elusive aspects of the natural world found within the trappings of civilization. The movement of light and the sound of the wind evoke a hypnotic, disturbing, yet healing, voyage where dreams appear, vanish and reappear. A tension of opposites, both conscious and unconscious, provide a contemplative glimpse of a hazy, trance-like journey of joy, youth, aging, loss, death and rebirth. The work, thusly connects passages of time, intertwined memories, and visions remembered and unremembered.

Simultaneously, Victoria collected used tea-bags from friends and family in her community (known for years as the Teabag Project). The individual bags were transformed into large, flowing scrims, that serve as shroud-like portals and visible traces of collective story-telling.

Victoria Arriola, a second generation Hispanic, was raised in Highland Park. She is a mixed media visual artist, art director, designer, adjunct professor at UC Berkeley, USC, and a Fulbright guest lecturer at the Danish School for Media and Journalism in Copenhagen, Denmark. Greatly inspired by her second home, Denmark (and much time spent in Iceland), her artwork focuses on the beauty and mystery found in decay. This body of work was completed during Covid.
