“Your dream is my memory” explores aggregation and community. While many art project using multiples involve loss or the repetition of a single concept this project utilizes community involvement to realize the complete piece. The 100 wooden blocks are distributed to the public who meet and assemble the blocks to reveal text on one side and a painting on the other. While each block can stand alone as a piece the full picture can only be realized when all 100 people gather at once. The art work, like the community, is made a disparate and diverse group that manifests itself when it comes together.
