To hear someone retelling a dream can be very dull.
To hear someone retelling a dream can be very dull. Going through my collections of material, I found a sound recording of myself trying to remember a dream just after waking up. It was made in 2006, and now I can only vagely remember having ever recorded that.
But the disconnection helped to highlight the act of telling the story. The actual experienced dream, and the process of trying to remember and retell it as it slipped away, becomes a story format of its own. The “dream syntax” with its incoherencies and gradual shifts that the dream subject always seems to accept, blends with the newly awake trying to make sense of it all.
The images are from the area around Dalaplan in Malmö, where I recently moved. The area is in a state of transition, where spaces of disparate use are intertwined by the still undefined, soon-to-be exploited.
