The Mistress of Dreams

   by Carole Heslin for Build A Dream (2014)

I used the cardboard box as the structure; the plaster cloth wrap formed into curtains and painted silver; the wooden mannequin is dressed with plaster cloth wrap painted black (dress); turban painted red and made of paper; plastic egg, which is suspended by aluminum rod, is wrapped with aluminum wire and painted silver; trim made of wire mesh, paper and aluminum wire; cardboard box painted for the floor; blue bird from a packing peanut that was formed with glue and painted blue; and canvas board painted black inside the tent.

Dreams have to come from somewhere!
