Vinicius Marquet: Oneiric Maps

Blend&Bleed: On Transreality and Pervasive Play

In the “Oneiric Maps” workshop, Vinicius Marquet explored dreams using Twine, an open-source tool for telling interactive, nonlinear stories. [1]1
Dreams from the session can be found on Vinicius Marquet’s website: .
The project fostered the remediation of written language within networked and programmable environments by remembering, deconstructing, and rearranging dreamed experiences. Accompanying music included Brian Eno’s “Deep Blue Day” (1983) and Hans-Joachim Roedelius’s “Le Jardin” and “Rue fortune” (1979).
