I created this piece while exploring ways of guiding others to effectively meet challenges of presenting objects, images and text in one work. For Turtle Dreams I began with an object, in this case a bone from a Sea Turtle washed up on the shores in a fishing village in Mexico and gifted to my by a friend. I have had many dreams about sea turtles. Using those dreams along with a series of writing and format exercises I've developed for content development, I wrote and refined the text, which remains the first layer of the book's pages, now obliterated by paint. I then imaged the pages as prompted by the text on each panel.
From an ongoing series of narratives inspired by objects that evoke memories, Sea Turtles includes a bone gifted to me with text derived from various dreams I had when I was working with a Jungian psychologist.
