It’s very exciting to see that the catalogue for the Archaeology of Hope, an international surrealist game, exhibition and ritual held on the Isle of Wight in 2017, is now available from Head Louse Press. This gorgeous catalogue contains many strange and shocking wonders from the surrealist future.
“The Archaeology of Hope was launched on the winter solstice of 2016, with an invitation to a game that culminated on the summer solstice of 2017. This book is a catalogue of the results of the game, and a record of the exhibition and performance ritual that sprang from it.”
An oneiric communication from Bruno Jacobs to Jason Abdelhadi, December 4th 2017:
“Last night I dreamed that I saw the following internet publication of yours, ELEKTRON.
I think that it was a kind of newsletter, and it looked quite exactly like this anyway, with paragraphs that didn’t really make sense to me, including odd numbers and capitals and with certain words in color. I was also somewhat surprised that it looked like text did on early MD-DOS computers.”

One night as I was drifting off to sleep, the idea occurred to me that, just like a film, the start of a dream might also be preceded by a sort of copyright infringement warning:
WARNING: The unauthorized repression or alteration of this dream is illegal. Criminal subconscious infringement, including infringement that results in monetary gain, censorship of traumatic details, exclusion of unsavoury personalities and situations, or other forms of mis-remembering are investigated by the Oneiric Bureau of Investigation (OBI) and are punishable by up to five years in Dream Jail (where the only erotic thing you are allowed to dream about is flipping through an old Ikea catalogue), and a fine of 250,000 oneirodinars.
