Londoners are invited to take a moment out of their daily commute, routine or journey and immerse themselves in a narrated collection of dreams by artist Emma Alonze with soundtrack by Andy Becker. The work will be installed in phoneboxes at various locations across London and will explore the ever narrowing gap between private thoughts and the public realm.
The work for 'Dream Talk' started in early 2017. Emma and Andy have been friends for over 18 years and decided to collaborate on a project that would bring awareness on mindfulness to London's busy streets.
'Dream Talk' is a collection of Emma's dreams over the past 3 years set to a soundtrack by Andy.
BT have granted permission to use four phone boxes across the city and the artists will be installing audio devices that participants can plug their own headphones into and immerse themselves in 'Dream Talk'.
The work will run from 13th - 23rd October and be at the following locations
Phone box outside 71-73 Stoke Newington High Street
Phone box on corner of Bellenden Road and Choumert Road Peckham
Phone box on junction of Portobello Road and Westbourne Grove
Phone box on Dean Street junction with Bourchier Street, Soho
£750 is needed to cover the cost of materials to complete the project. This includes, vinyl decals for the phone boxes, audio equipment and cleaning of the phone boxes for the duration on the installation.
Backers will receive a limited edition cassette of the work and an mp3 download.
Thank you in advance for your support!!
Risks and challenges
We have already overcome the biggest challenge which was to to gain permission from BT to use the phone boxes (honestly you should see the email thread).
We're all set to go with the project but need your help to get it to the streets!
Thanks Andy and Emma.xLearn about accountability on Kickstarter
