Lucid Rushi

A performance performed from inside a dream

2013 May

In investigating the possibilities of conversing from within sleep, a system to control a digital puppet from within a lucid dreaming state was built. I practiced lucid dreaming for six months using several techniques that were proposed in Stephen LaBerge’s research papers. This resulted in a gallery showing where I performed a thirty-second-long choreographed piece from within a lucid dream using the digital puppet system.
