A collaboration between White Crypt Project Space and Dream Guide Tree Carr to produce a 30 Card Oracle Deck inspired by artists' dreams.
The Artists’ Oracle is a unique initiative galvanised by the collaborative effort of White Crypt and Tree Carr, a dream guide and author, whose work explores the esoteric realms of dreams, death and divination.
Together, there are 30 artists to each produce one unique artwork that has been used to produce a single card, as part of The Artists’ Oracle deck. There is no other comparable project of its kind; The Artists' Oracle is exceptional for its attempt to bring together unique artworks - conceived and made especially for this initiative - in such a format.
Each artist was invited to work with their dreams as inspiration for their design. The artists were introduced to the concept of ‘conscious dreaming’, where a person explores the depths of their unconscious mind through interpreting and engaging with their dreams. Through a series of workshops with the artists, Tree Carr helped guide them on their journey. After the workshops the artists produced their designs, drawing upon their experiences and the practices they have developed. In this way, The Artists’ Oracle is a conduit into a collective imagination, offering a unique and exciting opportunity to engage with artworks in a very special format. Oracle cards are commonly used to gain insight into one’s own emotions and feelings. A card is drawn at random from the deck and you are invited to reflect on its meaning as an aid to self-reflection and mindfulness.
Swiss psychiatrist and psychoanalyst Carl Jung believed that dreams present an important view into the collective unconsciousness and that many of the symbols and images contained in our dreams have a universal meaning. Jung believed that the collective unconscious was an inherited collection of knowledge and images, also called archetypes, that every human being has at birth. He believed that for the most part individuals are unaware of the images and ideas contained in their collective unconscious. However, at times of personal crisis - and we could also say here global crisis - the psyche can open a door to the collective unconscious and to images contained in the unconscious, both of which might be accessed through dreams.
