Brice, Eric & Mia are Canadian artists and part of the “Art in Odd Places,” 14th Street Art Festival that is running through October. Their project was about dreaming, “increasing the awareness of dreams, and encouraging dreams in public places,” Eric told me. “Z’s by the sea” – or in Canadian, “Zeds by the Sea,” was the name of their project. They were giving out sleep masks in support of public napping—and dreaming. Participants decorate their own mask using wooden printer blocks—housed in a pretty nifty looking dream-like tower. Participants put on the mask and Brice photographed them, napping. I ran into them in Union Square park on a sunny afternoon last week. I loved the printer blocks. Print Making—it’s even older than analog. I wonder, since Union Square is pretty far from the sea, even the river, I wonder if the sea for the Z’s is part of the dream too. Actually, the exact title was "ZS By The C: A Radical Crafting and Public Napping Project." But it sounded more like by the sea. I salute their attempt to redefine the day dream. I love dreams, and I love naps, but I was meeting somebody so I only had time for a blog.
