It might seem an impossibility, along the same lines as ‘weaving mist’, but many valiant efforts have been made to map the myriad tangled threads of a multi-levelled dream journey.
The maps are an attempt to attach transient time, place, memory, association and/or emotion to a line or mark made by a pen.
Perhaps mapping is as effective a means of bringing our sub-consciousness dreams into the open as dream catchers?
The mapping strategy is simple – without trying to order or scaffold the dream experience in words, participants attempt to draw their dream journey not in some kind of linear route map but express it through whatever notation they feel is appropriate at the waking moment is most effective in ensnaring the experience of the dream. Whirls and circles and sudden erratic mark-making seems popular.
The effectiveness and expressiveness of the maps should not be down to the graphic skills of the drawers, any form of notation has equal value, there are no rules, no constraints.
