Dream Blanket

Mixed Media Participatory Installation: around 300 stripes of wool, each dyed a different color. Linen, river stones, un-dyed wool yarn, wood, dreams. (4/2009)

Participants wrote a dream- a wish close to their heart down on a uniquely dyed strip of wool and wove it into the warp. As the weaving filled, it transformed from the ephemeral wishes of many people into a fabric capable of warming and sheltering.

Instructions:

Think of a dream close to your heart- a wish, a desire, a hope. Find a piece of wool the color of your dream. Write your dream in the language you dream in and weave it into the blanket. It can be as clear of illegible as you like.
