Turner Prize* extracts the dreams of various individuals using psychiatric equipment, meditation practices, cleansing rituals and incantations. The symbology and esoteric imagery of this information is distilled into visual manifestations of the dreamers’ psychological states. In Invocation of the Hidden Secret, this process is shared with an audience. It is both a theatrical re-staging of a dream ceremony and an exercise in producing a collective dreamstate among both performers and audience members.
