How are dreams remembered and documented?
Keywords: dream, archaeology, memory, materiality
This research is an archaeological investigation on the material aspects of dream documentation. The research is mapping out a series of artefacts depicting dreams and practical methods of dream incubation, questioning whether dream practices can still be understood as a means to morph our present individual and collective socio-political lives. Redefined by each era and society, dreams are shaped by the historical conditions in which they are dreamt. To observe what kind of dreams emerge in a society’s subconscious, the research examines patterns, architectures, objects, and feelings that appear in documented dream visions. Such images seep from the past and the future into the turbulent present, and narrate a reality existing below the surface of the visible.
