Each piece of stuffing represents a dream and each of them has a different shape as we have different dreams. Each doll is stuffed with many dreams.
The dreams we stuff the dolls with are the dreams we have when we sleep. We need to sleep and dream. A massive amount of people suffers from sleeping problems, maybe as many as 20% of the world population.
There was a moment when I ran out of pillows. A friend suggested that I cheat the project and buy a new pillow. At that moment, to convince myself that I was doing the right thing I told myself that the stuffing of the new pillow would represent future dreams. I liked the idea. However when I was choosing the pillow in the supermarket I felt it just wasn’t right. They were not ‘alive’ pillows yet. I gave up this idea and continue asking friends to give me their old pillows. The future dreams are in the old pillows, dreamt by all of us. I felt relieved that I didn’t cheat the project.
