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.

Trisha Drew -- Tsunami

I am on an unfamiliar beach just sitting in the sand reading.  The tide comes up fast and the beach is covered in water.  At first it is just a little surprising but then loud horns start going off, and the wave and water begins to take over the whole beach area.  Suddenly it looks like a tsunami approaching – this huge amount of water is taking over everything.  People are beginning to try and run but it is impossible in the heavy water and sand....
