Abstract [en]

In this artistic research Swedenborg´s world of dreams is investigated. The aim of the project is to observe and reflect upon dreams potential and impact on the practical artmaking.

Several tools were used for this purpose: I Ching, a Tarot deck, a selfmade Dream deck, Oblique Strategies and C.G Jungs method Active Imagination.

The final outcome is a performance in Swedenborg´s Summerhouse in Stockholm.

The idea emanates from the story that Swedenborg served meals to the spirits in his summerhouse.

The performance unfolds in three parts: Cooking show, Talk show and Ritual. Emanuel Swedenborg´s spirit is invited together with the spirits of Carl Gustav Jung and Isabelle Eberhardt.

The text consist of two parts. One with selected dreams from both The Dreambook of Swedenborg and the authors dreamdiary. The other part is a text that invite the reader to follow the process.

A meal in the summerhouse is an attempt to raise conciousness about how dreams actively can be used in and form the artistic work.
