Linda Montano, Hypnosis, Dream, Sleep (1975)



For three hours I slept and dreamt in the Berkeley Art Museum. Whenever I had a dream, I would sing it into an amplification system.

Objects in the environment:
Chicken feathers
Cooked food
Uncooked chicken
A foam pad
A baby bottle

A few weeks before the event, a San Francisco hypnotist gave me a suggestion which contained the instructions for the piece. (Montano 1981, pages unnumbered)
