The Community Story Lab: How Does a Community Dream?
This month, the participants of Community Story Lab -- Venice Arts' year-long media arts project pairing adult community members with professional artists -- explored dreams through the lens of a camera. As each photographer showed their work, they discussed their interpretation of the prompt, and what dreams meant to them. From "chasing dreams" to "time as a dream" to "dream homes," the responses were as diverse as the photographs that resulted from this particular shoot.
For this post, lead artist and award-winning photographer Sara Terry put together a select of photographs from the participants, drawing attention to the commonalities of our seemingly disparate approaches to dreaming.
Here are her edits and musings on the photographic dreams of the participants:
