a dream project

I have been collecting brief descriptions of recent actual dreams, all of which are included here. I am not interested in analyzing them, but simply curious about the experiences we have while our minds and bodies are at rest.

In the process of collecting these dream stories, I was inspired to make A Thousand Threads, a limited edition, screen-printed book. It contains short, meditative poems I wrote by interweaving the dream fragments of others with my own dream imagery.

This project was part of The Spaces in Between, a solo exhibition curated by Susanna Meiers, February 14 – March 11, 2011, at the El Camino College Art Gallery in Torrance, CA.

Anonymous - Being Dumped Into The Void

As a child, in Chatham, NJ, I had a recurring nightmare: I dreamt that I was tied to a parking meter on a conveyor belt which gradually "dumped" us into a void!

I think that this dream started as I was in my bed looking up at the ceiling where there was a long crack. Somehow that turned into the dream!
