Dreams’ Time Capsule is a research and participatory project started in 2011 through a series of public events hosted by museums, universities and art spaces in Europe, Latin America, Middle East and Africa. The inflatable structure was designed to travel in a suitcase, and to be temporarily installed indoor or outdoor. The seashell – shape inflatable installation is a private space that allows visitors to have the intimacy to focus
their own dreams memories and record by voice and receive them by email in 2021-22. The audio archive of dreams, which arrived to collect about 2086 testimonies, has become a laboratory on memory and social and political events having traced personal and emotional reactions to political elections, such as the first elections after 30 years Mubarak’s dictatorship, the Brexit vote and the referendums in Italy.
The delivering phase while offering the donors their record after years, it may reflect their past expectations towards the future, fragmentations, generational gaps, and tensions dictated by the distance of time. Being a process-based research of about ten years, the project embodies a series of further considerations in “a posteriori” approach intertwined with the more than two thousand donors’ expectations of their lives and social and economic changes in the society.
