31 Dreamers at Fun-A-Day

Philadelphia's 5th annual Fun-A-Day show happened at Studio 34 in Philadelphia on February 14th, 2009 and lemme tell you, that jawn was PACKED! I rolled in around 8:00 p.m. and there were literally hundreds of people looking at everything. With over 70 contributing artists who'd made or documented one thing per day for 31 days, there were over 2,100 things to look at. 31 of those things were your dreams.

Transferring your dreams from the web and into a onto paper, I realized how long some of them were and that the interpretations were even longer. I ended up abridging most of them and printing them out on cards, which were folded in half and placed on a table for people to peruse. Here's Jason with his "Lazy Laaaazzzzz" dream, a personal favorite of mine. 

There were a lot of inquiries about whether or not 31 Dreamers would continue, and I told people, "As long as people interact act with the blog, the blog will interact back." That's a hint folks: leave your comments and send in your dreams! Maybe we're taking a little time off, but we can jump back into it with a little more 2-way traffic. Deal? Deal.

I liked the card-based layout of 31dreamers for fun-a-day...translating a blog onto paper is not easy or intuitive. keep on blogging, don't let the lurkers stop you.

Thanks Paolo! Likely the dreams and their annotations will return shortly...
