Corona Visions

Corona Visions

“To see a World in a Grain of Sand
And a Heaven in a Wild Flower
Hold Infinity in the palm of your hand
And Eternity in an hour”

These are Blake’s words written in Felpham, Bognor Regis to describe the feeling of cosmic wonder to be found immediately within the world we inhabit.

As an artist and poet Blake invites us to explore the visionary quality of our thoughts, feelings and sensations.

The public have been sending in lockdown art (painted, written, sung, sculpted, strummed, filmed, coded or otherwise) to our online collective and Arts Council of England-backed gallery, Corona Visions. We then separated the submission into two categories, Innocence and Experience. The results of this are displayed in the gallery.

Located on the Home page, Mikey B Georgeson, artist and curator, launches Virtual Visions: a curated gallery with a specially-created video song-poem “As I walked in the garden” featuring the art sent by the public. The video for the song features Mikey’s naked foot walking on grass and was inspired by the lines of Jerusalem also composed in Felpham. Blake saw the foot as the meeting of two realms and a path between the virtual and the physical is embodies how Corona Visions leads us to an expanded community of creativity.
