Neptune is an independent research project. This is an archive of dreams, hallucinations and visions of artists, writers and thinkers; conducted through recorded interviews and field work.


Neptune dream documentation is for the purpose of -

- creating of an educational resource about dream practice as a tool for artistic performance and psychological illumination

- facilitation of community dialogues about the unconscious

- observation of recurrent symbols and narratives among individuals in this moment in human history

- deconstruction of the language of dreams as means to access the hidden self and hidden worlds

- dream sharing as oral storytelling practice


In 2020, Neptune published the COVID-19 COLLECTIVE DREAM JOURNAL, a record of dreams and hallucinations experienced by the People of the World during the coronavirus pandemic. 

The soundtrack to Neptune is ‘The Devil’s Dream’ by Sid Hemphill, from the Alan Lomax Collection at the American Folklife Center, Library of Congress. Courtesy of the Association for Cultural Equity.

Neptune is recorded on the stolen land of the Wurundjeri people of the Kulin Nation. We pay our respects to elders past, present and emerging.
