To dream while waking (wilderness of things)

To dream while waking asks you to daydream consciously. To see with eyes half-closed what we cannot see with eyes wide open; the wildness of things. The agency and persistence of the things we have made, an agency or being which precedes and exceeds their human-use value as consumer goods. It invites you to enter seriously into playful imaginings and fabulations for a post-anthropocentric lifeworld, a wilderness of things. You are welcome to spend as long or as short a time as you wish in the dwelling space. You may engage with the space on your own, or you may choose to participate in an imagination-encounter with a nonhuman entity.
