Dreams Archive, Edited by Cristina Cobianchi (Publisher: bruno, Venice – October 2023) is the umbrella project developed between 2011 and 2023 by Eva Frapiccini in collaboration with video, sound, and live arts artists around dream imaginaries from an audio archive of more than 2.300 dream narratives from different geographical areas. The eponymous publication has the dual form of catalog and essay in its two sections DREAMS_Research in practice and DREAMS_Reader. The first section describes the traveling participatory event Dreams’ Time Capsule (2011-2022); the video installation and performance Dust of Dreams (2022); the sound installation Dreamscape (2023); and the photographic series H.D.M. (2022-23). The projects are documented through the various exhibition stages, including Dreamscape‘s recent participation in the Son Biennale in Switzerland. The second section DREAMS_Reader collects the scientific contributions of Dreamscape‘s Public Program – Talks, conceived by the artist together with Labont – Laboratory of Ontology and Interdepartmental Research of the University of Turin, organized by AlbumArte with the support of Fondazione Compagnia di San Paolo, as part of the call for proposals Art~Waves.
