Dreams’ Time Capsule is a research and participatory project that first began in 2011 and attempts to create an international audio archive of dreams, collected from visitors during public events in museums, universities and art spaces.

Taking the Jungian concept of Collective Unconscious, where structures of the unconscious mind are shared among beings of the same species, the project attempts to create a source to understand the archetypes that surface in dreams, through different religions, traditions, or geographical areas.

In every collection point anthropologists and psychologists are invited to give scientific contributions to the research, in consideration of the cultural traditions, folktales, languages and narrative styles that could be conserved on the “oneiric” matrix.

More than 1200 dream testimonies have been collected so far in different countries from Europe, Latin America, the Middle East and Africa. Visitors were invited to step inside the mobile work of public art at YSP and donate their own dream - a dream that they remember, but they cannot understand - which will go on to be analysed by the artist and a team of researchers.
