With the Dream Delivery Service, Mathias Svalina writes and delivers dreams to subscribers every day for a month. To nearby subscribers, Svalina hand-delivers the dreams—brief surrealist narratives he writes & encloses in small pink envelopes–to their doors, biking through the empty streets of Denver before dawn.
Svalina started the Dream Delivery Service 2014, hoping to devise a new sort of relationship with a reader, a new kind of reading intimacy. In addition to his delivery service, throughout November Svalina will meet visitors & transcribe their dreams to collect in The Big Book of Denver Dreams, & host events of embodied dream-logic in the Understudy space (890 C 14th St.), bringing the personal framework of the dream into social settings:
