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 - The Missing Recipe

I had a dream this morning that I was trying to make a recipe.  I don't remember clearly what I was trying to make, but I think it was cookies.  I started putting the ingredients together, but then I couldn't find the paper that had the recipe on it.  I started looking around for the paper.  There were a bunch of other pieces of paper sitting around but I couldn't find the recipe anywhere.  A relative of mine started giving me a hard time about starting a recipe without having the recipe, and I said, "You're not very nice, are you?"
