When you dream - what do you dream about?
I dreamt of dinosaurs in black and white.
It was an old fashioned time machine
all whirling wheels and flashing light.
Going back in time, I saw glimpses, images, distant shadows.
It was like a slide projector, an old TV or a ride on the El,
but with scary neighbors of the Mesozoic kind.
Were there tiny mammals in that far distant time?
Or some ancestor of tiny mammals, or of us?
Is that why we hope to see our shadows - or fear them?
Exhibited at Clybourn Gallery, February 2001.
Thanks to Jon Meyers and Gabrielle Lyon who helped me bring my dream to you.
