Dream Mirror

Norah Solorzano

Physically manifesting my dreams so that others may interact with them.


Dream Mirror is an art installation consisting of a series of animated dioramas depicting different dreamscapes with which the viewer may interact and explore. It is a curiosity cabinet filled with a collection of dream memories. The viewer plays the part of voyeur stealing glances into the dreamworld I have created as the drawers are explored, then ultimately becomes co-architect of this world as their presence affects these dreamscapes. The viewer is given the power of connecting these tableaus into a narrative by exploring them with a tiny camera, each visitor creating their own surreal story out of these dream worlds. The very private experience of dreaming is thereby turned into a public and collaborative experience.
