From 2008-2013 I kept several dream diaries. In 2011, I jotted down a dream that has lead me here. It follows “Our living room is turned into an olympic sized swimming pool. Inside and atop of the water, I can make out dozens of silhouettes floating and bobbing about.After leaning in for a closer look, I find that the pool is filled with purple mannequins with radios installed inside of their plastic craniums. They are sending out wavelengths and secret codes to other planets. We are being watched”. I find a mannequin laying out in front of my apartment building a few days later. I bring it home and place it on the windowsill. A few months go by and another mannequin shows up on the curb outside , only a few feet outside the front door. I bring it indoors to accompany the first one. Some time passes and a headless blue mannequin is given to me by a friend. While looking for a new place to live, I find a pair of abandoned plastic legs leaning up in the hallway of the apartment building. My collection keeps on growing. With these occurences/coincidences, I began to document windows,shopfronts, and homes. Most of the shops are no longer in business. It is also important to note that not all of the images contain mannequins or figures. Nevetheless, they belong to the crystal ball of the book. All of these 35mm film images were taken over the course of five years following the dream. The photographs are shot throughout different cities including Berlin, Saugerties, Woodstock, New York City, among others.
