I am considering creating an interactive piece on dream interpretation. One possibility is to create a meta-dream journal that has a database for dreams. The user could type in their dreams into this database, elements are pulled from the entries, words are compiled and exported through a “dream analyzer” where nouns, adjectives and verbs are examined to create an interpretation. For example, if the user types in “I was chased by my school teacher” the analyzer would use the word “chase” and “teacher” and pull out possibilities for their meaning for the user to review. Although I am worried the results would be incredibly inaccurate after going through this process. The program would have to interpret each noun with consideration to the related verbs or adjectives in every sentence. Then that information would have to be analyzed within the whole context of the dream entry.
Creating a visual dream game is another option. The user could pull visual elements together and rearrange them to create an artistic dream piece. Common themes or symbols would have to be available for the user to draw upon. Of course there would have to be hundreds of graphics and hundreds of different scenarios the user could create. And how exactly would the graphics interact with one another to create meaning or art?
