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.

Darlene DeAngelo - A Dog Named KIRKA

It was very vivid and about having a new dog. The dog was a puppy, but he was the size of a German shepherd, mostly black and tan, but had floppy ears like a cocker spaniel.  His name was KIRKA, and I was walking him all over Europe – well, European cities I have visited.  I seemed to magically go from Venice, to Paris, to Vienna, to London.  People would stop me and ask me his name – he was a very friendly dog – and I would spell out K-I-R-K-A.

I had the dream two nights ago, November 16th, while house-sitting/dog-sitting for a friend in Huntington Beach, CA.
