Judi Harvert's Room of Dreams

For the Dialogue of Fire exhibition, I was invited to create an everyday, universal object. I chose the pillow, where we rest our heads when we dream. I constructed an installation of pillows using handmade Murano glass, the ancient material associated with Venice, together with sound, scent and light evoking beautiful dreams.

In this Venetian Palace bedroom, I have placed eighteen glass pillows made on the island of Murano on a round mattress that echoes the ceiling fresco above the installation. The mattress is filled with lavender from my Murano Honey Garden, where I began a colony of bees, a link to my installation during the last Venice Biennale, “Denatured: Honeybees + Murano.” Lavender is known to induce a state of relaxation, the prelude to sleep. The installation is an ethereal reminder that while our dreams may be a challenge to realize, nothing is impossible.
