Look at Roger’s outstanding load. Roger Omar has once again (see previous) edited, published and sent Meathaus a beautiful set of unfolding dreams. Children did the dream labor and then these dreams were collected, processed, refined and illustrated. Roger’s note reads:

“January 2016,
Hello Chris!
Hope you enjoy this new set of dream leporellos.
Thanks a lot,
Roger Omar”

The description from the project website elaborates, “All these dreams are authentic (that is, were actually dreamed by children 8-10 years old) and maintain the original syntax of the children´s texts. They are translated into 2 languages, including English.”

These are the kind of objects that make one want to invent new display cases to feature their unfolding double-sided entireties for one’s Really Nice Stuff museum. The editorial direction and published quality of these pieces really do the excellent artists’s work justice. Thanks Roger, for sharing with Meathaus. See the previous load here. See more at Roger’s website, 6Dreams Tumblr, and Flickr.

Visit the artists included in this batch of dreamers: Marta Pina, Tim Peacock, Lea Heinrich, Benjamin Courtault and Karoline Achilles.

Roger Omar sent Meathaus this envelope stuffed with beautiful things from interesting and fantastic artists. And I took an ass-long time to post it. Shame, shame on me. Lee-the-spring-semester-intern scanned some of these and had it set up for me but then I just needed to scan some more because everything is outstanding. So Roger engaged some artists to illustrate six authentic dreams from 8-10 year old children in Valencia, Spain, (and one has six dreams from a child in Tel Aviv, Israel) which remain the text accompanying each illustration, written in Spanish and English.

“Best Wishes,
and happy Dreams,
Roger Omar”

Thank you Roger, for such strange, folding items, part book, poster, or something else. Most of them have the dream text on the opposite side and more images. It is hard to illustrate here that most of the images above where you see only two pages are only a part of the panoramic accordion fold-out illustrations on each of these publications that flow the entire length of the side of paper. Maybe Roger’s got some on a website. Let’s check. So here is the website:

And it looks like you can check out more stuff and maybe get some books on Roger’s 6 Dreams Tumblr and here is a Flickr stash.

And of course the featured artists are Meathaus favorites: Matthew Houston, Thomas Wellmann, Max Fiedler, Wren McDonald, Amanda Baeza, and Roni Fahima.
