This dream tent is made from a silk Japanese parachute. Participants enter from a small doorway and sit on the ground surrounded by various symbols: a poem, ambient music, a doll’s bed of marigold flowers, key, cage, lion, human hair wig to create a dream like atmosphere. Art materials are provided to write, draw or tell a dream with the tin can telephones. My intention is to foster a dream community.
Dreams are meant to be shared, investigated, embellished. They hold personal and collective meanings. Many cultures collectively honor and share their dreams. We all are dreamers. Sharing dreams and our dream creations can help dissolve the barriers that keep us separate from ourselves and one another. Dreams come to help us, to show us where we are, to guide, inspire, and grow us.
