I've been working on a collaborative project about dreams over the last year and a half. This has recently taken the form of a book project that grows as each person takes the journal home. Inside is a record of their dream in both written and photographic form; the photo is taken with a pinhole camera. The part that I'm really liking about it is that it is a cumulative piece and each person has the opportunity to read what the others have written before. In this way, it continues to evolve as a piece and invites people to share within an intimate forum. If anyone's interested in contributing to the book and being part of the piece let me know. Here's a couple of shots from contributors who live in Chicago.
