Dream Machines

Dream Machines takes up the theme of the transformative power of art, presenting works that propose the possibility of shifting the viewer’s consciousness to induce reverie, hallucination, or transcendence. International and cross-generational, this book includes daily dream drawings, dream paintings, and real-life “dream machines,” as well as photography, sound, video, and installation work that engage with mediumship and trance, intoxication, hypnosis, and out-of-body experience. Selected by the artist Susan Hiller and operating in the territory covered by her own work, Dream Machines is the latest in a series of exhibitions curated by distinguished artists.
