Super Dream

Alexi Torres's avatar Alexi Torres

The true powers - the power of the mind, the power of our desires and dreams. We often speak of our goals as being dreams themselves. It is as if on some level, we have always understood the potential of our dreaming hours. While we sleep, we are not separated by race, beliefs or anything else. With this is mind, I decided to create a body of work based on the idea of co-creation through dreaming together. The forms of mattresses reflect various interests, fields and symbols of contemporary society upon which the dreamers rest. Whether we are talking about the proverbial American Dream or any future achievement that we look forward to. As I thought about the fact that we spend 1/3 of our lifetimes sleeping, I became increasingly interested in the power of the dream state. Information I collected indicated that through dreams, we can find out what is really in our thoughts because there is not resistance like there is with our awake minds. While dreaming, we are open to our truth.
