9/11 Dream Falls (2001—2019)
I had in the past recorded my dreams every morning for several months at a time. I found it difficult to go for longer as I needed to wake up very ‘carefully’ so that the dream did not escape and disappear like sand between my fingers. I carried these dreams around on tape for a long time without ever knowing exactly what to do with them.
After the events of September the eleventh 2001, I recorded my dreams again for several months to explore my ‘unconscious’ reaction to the seemingly universal anxiety I sensed around me. I then began exploring ways of ‘showing’ these dreams in a physical way that would correspond to the ephemeral nature of the dream, whereby the light magnetic tape of the sound recording would fall to the ground from a certain height and make a drawing which would always escape and snake away like the dream itself.
