Jerry and Adrian talk about their dream map drawings created with Mohammad for their performance in DREAMROOM

Over the course of several months, artists from YAI ARTS and Brooklyn College’s Performance and Interactive Media Arts (PIMA) program investigated dreams as a mode of personal expression and strategy for neurodiverse collaboration. Our approach was interdisciplinary, using projection, drawing, animation, and live performance to create a space for the manifestation of dreams.

On May 16 & 17, 2015, we presented D R E A M R O O M as part of Assembly Required: Making Space for Community Engagement at the Brooklyn Museum.

Alternating between open studio sessions and performances of ongoing multimedia projects, D R E A M R O O M was an active space where museumgoers could talk, work, and dream with us.
