Fiction. Each story PSYCHO DREAM FACTORY appropriates celebrity figures like paper dolls in order to enact a new and peculiar drama. Imagine Dr. Dre's first experience coming on the Burning Man festival! Suppose MJ's death was only a publicity stunt! What if Woody Allen found a protégé? These are just some of the scenarios you'll entertain in this delightful volume. Introduction provided by Lily Robert-Foley, with delicious design created and covers printed by Sonnenzimmer and artwork included by the author. This full-color book was made in an edition of 100. Prior to its inclusion in "Happiness Machines" (an exhibit at Roxa Boxen Exhibitions) 25 copies of PSYCHO DREAM FACTORY were placed and left behind (with bar codes) in supermarket checkout aisles in Chicago, IL.
