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.

Karen Frimkess Wolff - Pale Woman in the Desert

There was a pale woman and a pale child between two dark men in a desert.  They all lay down to sleep at night. When the morning came, the child was dead and covered with blood and sand.  The woman was also covered with blood and sand but still alive.  The woman got up and walked away into the desert by herself.  The two dark men were fine. The desert was their natural habitat.
