The Awaken Dreamer

The Awaken Dreamer

Performance, 20 min, 2012
The performer reads selected dreams passages from several novels written by Vladimir Nabokov using a library wheel, a machine invented by Agostino Ramelli in the 14th century. The system of the wheel embodies the reading process as a trigger for digressive thinking, fortuitous combinations and slips. The grotesque apparatus functions as the instrument for associative thinking, an oneiric tool to help the narrator meander through different visions.
