A Dream in Fire and Blues

   by Braelyn Snow for Build A Dream (2014)

Canvas (woven into bedspread), Clay (bed supports, build body of dreamer), Mannequin (skeleton of dreamer), Wire mesh (bedspread layer), Hardboard (bed), Wire (headdress/dream waves, support), Card Stock (dream waves) Canvas board (support), Dowels (bedposts), Packing peanuts (hair/clouds), Acrylic Paint (mostly everywhere), Elmer's Glue (mostly everywhere)

I liked the idea of combining the act of sleep and dreaming with surreal elements like an enlarged head, missing facial features, abnormal skin tone, bizarre bed chamber, etc. The dream is within the dream.

Thanks for the project!
