The Secret Dream Loops of
players, speakers, notebook pages
Over the past year I have been recording the dreams of plants living in malls across Southern California. I am particularly interested in the effects of environmental noise on a plant's general health and physical/emotional well-being. While the analysis of dreams, particularly plant dreams, is necessarily rather subjective, I must note that the results of my research so far point to a clearly causal relationship between mall noise and "bad" dreams.
|The Secret Dream Loops of Four Mall-bound Plants was presented at Skylight Books in Los Angeles as part of a group show focusing on mall culture in Southern California. Four small speakers playing continuous loops of the plant dream sounds were placed around the gallery, each with a field note describing the plant from which the recording was made. The above text was presented on a white sheet of paper hung near one of the speakers.
