My friend Elizabeth Honer recreated one of her dreams in Tiltbrush, a VR painting program. You can see a video tour of it at https://twitter.com/grrlrighter/status/1117241028673769472 [NOTE: you do not have to have a Twitter account to look at that video.]
She describes it thus:
I recreated a dream I had in Tiltbrush
… This is a dream I had a few years ago and it really stuck with me. I dreamed I was in a place where it was perpetually sunset, and I was on a moving walkway that I could control with my mind. If I thought “forward” it would move forward, same thing to go backward. All the trees lining the walkway had lights in them, which I loved. They reminded me of a Mary Oliver poem. At the end of the walkway, there was a rickety bridge that led over a river to a land I couldn’t see. I remember feeling happy here, very relaxed and peaceful, and it felt like I had all the time in the world.
It was really difficult for me to recreate this in VR
I had to try several times, and it still isn’t exactly how I would like it, but it’s close enough, and I gotta get to other projects. Definitely a good learning experience. I’ve also attached the original picture I drew right after having the dream.
Here is the still image of the dream:
Here is the Mary Oliver poem she’s referring to:
When I Am Among the Trees
When I am among the trees,
especially the willows and the honey locust,
equally the beech, the oaks and the pines,
they give off such hints of gladness.
I would almost say that they save me, and daily.
I am so distant from the hope of myself,
in which I have goodness, and discernment,
and never hurry through the world
but walk slowly, and bow often.
Around me the trees stir in their leaves
and call out, “Stay awhile.”
The light flows from their branches.
And they call again, “It’s simple,” they say,
“and you too have come
into the world to do this, to go easy, to be filled
with light, and to shine.”
