The Water Hole

Do you ever have dreams that are kind of magical, but kind of post-apocalyptic? Maybe there are things that look organic somehow, like they're growing in your dreams, but when you examine them closely, yes, there are brightly coloured crystals and tree branches, but somehow trash is mixed up there too, bottles, mobile phones, discarded toys, weird things, everything feels different somehow.

Maybe in your dream you climb up a ladder and sit and watch over this strange world, or sit on a stool and watch it through binoculars. Maybe you get to the world by walking through a silver tunnel, that appears to be made from sticks and silver foil and moves in the breeze.

Perhaps you dream you're lying in bed and there is a rock hanging over you, or there is a weird mobile above your head, turning, or perhaps the bed keeps moving while you lie in it. These things happen.

My dreams are mostly ordinary, but this is my reality, this is real, at Melbourne's Australian Centre for Contemporary Art, at the current exhibition, The Water Hole by Gerda Steiner & Jörg Lenzlinger.

I dreamt that Cheryl Cole was my girlfriend recently - highly disturbing!

Wow, I have to go see that.

I don't know quite what to make of that. So I guess it _is_ like dreams.
