The project started 2 years ago when we created a digital application called the digital Dreamhacker. The digital Dreamhacker is an application that collects dream themes reported by individual dreamers and turns them into crowdsourced imagery. These dream visualisations are then uploaded onto the Social Web, allowing for further commentary and collective interpretation. This time we would like to compare the digitally produced crowdsourced dream visualisations (produced by the our digital Dreamhacker app) with analogue crowdscoursed visualisations created by people visualising other people’s dreams. This will construct an installation in which both analogue human generated sculptures and prints of computationally generated crowdsourced dream visualisations will be put side by side resulting into an impressive collaborative sculpture, a physical network of dream imaginaries. The project focuses on the social context of dreams, creating visualisations that are neither depictions of individual imaginings or a means of enhancing artistic skill, but involve the reframing of dreams within the technical and social imaginary, which forms our collective understandings and expectations of social life.
