Maria Fischer — Traumgedanken

It combines so many things that I love: embroidery (or at least thread), artist’s books, using design to add meaning. I feel like I would need to see this book to fully understand all the levels of connectivity, but what I understand based on these photos is that this book is beautiful. Here is what Maria has to say about her book: The book “Traumgedanken” (“Thoughts on dreams”) contains a collection of literary, philosophical, psychological and scientifical texts which provide an insight into different dream theories.To ease the access to the elusive topic, the book is designed as a model of a dream about dreaming.

To ease the access to the elusive topic, the book is designed as a model of a dream about dreaming. Analogue to a dream, where pieces of reality are assembled to build a story, it brings different text excerpts together. They are connected by threads which tie in with certain key words. The threads visualise the confusion and fragileness of dreams. On five pages there are illustrations made out of thread. In addition there are five pages where a significant excerpt from a text of the opposite page is stitched into the paper.
