Dreaming on social networks.
One Million Dreams is a generative video that lasts around 200 hours which shows, instant by instant, a whole year of dreams captured from social networks.
This is a short preview.
You had a dream last night, and you published something about it on major social networks? A software captured it and put it on a database.
In the video, dreams are captured and processed using natural language analysis to understand people’s emotions regarding the various dreams, and the topic it deals with.
For the time being, we have isolated a limited number of topics: “job”, “love”, “school”, “money”, “environment”, “relations”, “family”, “memories” and “future”.
The video will be soon implemented as an exhibit, in which dreams will be captured and visualized in real-time.
Then they will be archived, to obtain the largest dream archive of the planet: a global library of the dreams of all humanity in which it will be possible to contribute, search for dreams and extract them (the archive of real-time dreams will form a source of real-time Open Data) and research, play, make apps with them.
One Million Dreams has been produced through the Human Ecosystems project.

AOS, Art is Open Source, is an international informal network exploring the mutation of human beings with the wide and ubiquitous accessibility and availability of digital technologies and networks.
We move across arts and sciences, using technology, communication, performance, art and design, to instantiate emotional actions and processes that are able to expose the dynamics of our contemporary world.
We do this in academic, artistic, business and activist domains and, actually, we are focused on moving fluidly among each of these spaces.
