Ingrid Wiener has been working with imaginary images within dreams since 1995. She tries to depict the dream experience immediately after waking with a sketch. "But since many things only appear in a feeling or vague 'knowledge', hardly anything remains of what is actually pictorial. It's like trying to look closely in a dream - the thing melts away or you wake up." (Ingrid Wiener).

"I should not forget one dream, the one with Oswald and the beady eyes. I see part of a face with brown beady eyes. It's Oswald and me at the same time. We are doing badly. Suddenly a shot goes off and I see the face from the front / and one eye is gone and blindfolds are flapping around / * Sleeping with a blindfold on because of the light nights / 07/19/2001 Dawson I.
