Dream of an installation of a dog and various inclined surfaces. I was looking through a glass pane into a room. Brown-pink wallpaper + carpet. A strangely illuminated cube, which I saw as a photograph. Then we left the empty house.

The work with the long and complicated title is a deliberate and radical crossing of Richard Meier’s building with a staging of a text fragment from the Dream Journal I have been keeping for many years. I was interested in making various elements from these nightly recordings coexist (pane of glass, slanted planes, dog, cube, carpet, photography) and in breaking up the installation into surfaces and depths. The unfinished, disrupted and essentially suggestive situation provides an incomplete view of the whole installation. The overlappings and shifts thus created refer to disintegrating, relativising or hidden dream contents.
