Desk, two chairs, suitcases with cutouts with old illustrations and old photographs, tracing paper and drawing material.
The laboratory of dreams was a participatory project that explored the possibility of making shared maps guided by intuitive intelligence that documented and tried to establish links, between our night dreams and our day time projects and desires.The project happened as part of the exhibition dream economics. The maps resulted from a series of drawing& collage conversations with the public attending the exhibition, on a one to one basis. We would sit on a table, and first, share to each other our night dreams . The conversation approached Carl Jung's dream concepts of the anima, animus and shadow.
While we spoke, we made a collaborative collage, by selecting cut outs from a suitcase. I would lead the participants into selecting the cutouts by attending to the profound feelings and sensations felt in one's body. We would then draw the tableaux together while exploring, during the second part of the project, our daytime dreams (our plans and desires) while identifying in a loose and indirect way blockages, by playing a word association game.
