multiphase, multimedia, multisensory project
fall 2012 – …..
An ongoing project, sometimes i dream in technicolor, is a multiphase project in which I take on three distinct roles. Firstly, I am the research assistant. I go out into the community in my lab coat armed with my laptop and voice recorder to collect dreams that participants have had. I will be interviewing each participant about a particularly vivid dream s/he has had. The interview process involves taking dictation as well as recording the participant’s recollection of the dream. In the second role, I play the dream analyst. I will interpret each dream based on major symbols, emotions, imagery, etc. present in the retelling of the dream. The dreams and interpretations will then be posted to a blog (electricalimpulses.blogspot.com). The final phase of this project finds me in the role of the Artist. I will be illustrating each dream in a large mixed media accordion book folds out seven feet across the room and unfolds in a zigzag fashion so it trails down the wall. Viewers will have to pace back and forth in order to view it sequentially.
Each participant will receive a letter press printed poster (pictured below) and a card (pictured above) as a token of thanks for participating in the project.
