Dream On

The Dream Map Installation went public for 10 days on the corner of Micheltorena St  and Sunset Blvd starting June 9th, 2012 as part of the Silverlake Art Craft and Vintage Festival and then, well,  I did what any public installation artist would do........ left it.  How would these hipsters, parents, bus takers, and graffiti control trucks react to a 20'x 16' Dream Map that asks you to come up the little table provided, manifest through writing your deepest heart's desire for your life on a dream cloud, pin it to the map, then opening a little cigar box and take a little piece of paper with the message "yes." Could it last one night? Kind of a miracle it did. Apparently, they liked it  and The Map filled up quickly.

 Over those 10 days, I stayed busy refilling clouds, pins, and pencils from participants or from people who clearly never heard of the $1 store.... who steals a jar of push pins?!?! Cheap masochists?

Here are some highlights of what I hope to be the start of many Dream Maps placed on public streets and parks all over LA and beyond by yours truly for people to begin living from and for their heart & imaginations. I need help funding the expansion of this project- for more info visit-
