One of the most original dream-related sites on the web, urbandreamscape.com, has begun a blog detailing their dream incubation experiments: the Oneironauticum.
Jennifer Dumpert and associates discuss their participation in on-going group dreaming projects with an emphasis on how dreams and waking life meet through the perception of landscape and cityscape. It’s part slumber party, part experiential research, and sounds like a lot of fun.
Psychogeography is the concept behind this project – the study of consciousness in relationship to place. What began as an architectural movement in the 1950s has become an interdisciplinary adventure, influencing modern art, ecopsychology, cognitive archaeology, and, of course, experiential dream research.
If you”re interested in how psychogeography intersects with dreams and sacred sites, a great starting place is Stanley Krippner and Paul Devereux’s work with megalithic sites in England and Wales.
