The Dreamer's Pursuit of a Self-Referentiality by SR
Every image conceived in the dream functions as a text to be read. The texts of the unconscious and the letters inscribed on a page each are lined like lacerations, opening as obfuscations, imposing an interminable limit which resists reason's attempts to make sense—one must tear through the tissue towards what is most precious; the repressed, raw and searing heart of the matter.
Oneiric "automatism" does not merely conjure images and ideas in the mind, but becomes punctured, penetrated and conjoined by a heedless convergence of linguistic materialities: word, symbol, object, memory. The task is, in some sense, to carve through the manifest material of the dream to the belly of the muscle, seeking the spot where the navel is knotted, where the fibers of the multifarious strange, terrifying or downright banal forms seen in dreams lead to the adhesions constituting the symptom.
SR's project experiments with control and freneticism, meticulously cataloging her dreams for content to exploit and explode, unleashing their affects through associative and synecodchic strains of logic which conjoins poetry, automatism, the found object and academic extraction in a confessional and messy oneirotic text.
