Four scenes. 1. I have a lodger, possibly Japanese. She has placed lots of toys around my home but when I look more closely I realise these include 4 brown dogs, all different shapes but all the same rich shade. There’s a mask on the wall. 2. I meet an American woman who is here to research her family. She has 4 white dogs. Again, I see one, then two, three, four. All are different. 3. I am interviewing a writer, who I think is Kurt Vonnegut, in his hotel room. He has 4 pale honey coloured dogs. We are putting jeans and socks back on, getting ready to leave. I don’t know why or how we are both minus clothing and it seems a strange coincidence. 4. I am in an interesting boutique (possibly in Cardiff) with moss green walls. I suddenly see a humming bird has flown in. It’s very beautiful and magical, but then I worry about where it will find food. The shop has lovely things, but no nectar.
Describe your dream in a simple text in as much detail as you can remember and we will feature your dream for the upcoming performance DREAM RITUAL, artwork creation and DREAM AUCTION. For DREAM AUCTION, the dream submitted will be sold as the text written at the time of submission with no alterations or corrections. The dream you are selling should be a dream that you personally have dreamt.
We are not responsible for any fabricated dreams or the subsequent impact of dreams, such as curses or nightmares. Please don’t submit a dream that you don’t want to sell or you have already sold to someone else. If you want to submit your dream for DREAM RITUAL/art creation only but not for sale, simply leave a note '*not for sale'. Then your dream will feature for the performance and art creation but won't be listed on DREAM AUCTION.
WORKSHOPS & DISCUSSIONS
Dream and Dreaming - their place in our lives
We are running a series of talks, discussions and workshops in lot of different contexts around the themes of dream. After our first workshop ‘Dream and Dreaming - their place in our lives’ at Wellcome Collection’s Reading Room on 2nd April 2019, the second one was held at Korean Cultural Centre in UK on 31st May. This series of workshops run by the project director Bongsu Park and Hazel Riley - an author, teacher and shamanic practitioner.
During the workshop we will talk about the project and the specific Korean culture of buying and selling dreams. Also we will share our ideas about dreams from many perspectives – dream related traditional customs to neuroscience and psychology. Alongside the dream contributions through our project website, people can contribute their dreams off-line at the end of workshop.
