Last night I had a dream (audio and light installation)


| Dreams from artists and village residents | Abandoned old house (originally a chicken nesting room) | Audio recorder |
A box of colored chalk | Fabric and nylon string | Electric lights (cable wiring included) | Live nesting chicken | Incense |

Over 10 days collect dreams, record and play them in a loop, a continuous narration of dreams. In the centre of the abandoned house, using the fabric, create a labyrinth around dim lights. Using a box of colored chalk, mix in some of the dreams, and draw a fantastical map of the village of Shatana. The final touch; burn some incense. Remember; always keep a live nesting hen in a corner.
