MacKay, Karen Lynn (2011): Lost in translation?: an investigation of the interpretative process via the creation of a memento based on dream analysis. In: Proceedings of the 2011 iConference 2011. pp. 712-716. http://dx.doi.org/10.1145/1940761.1940881

In this paper issues related to communication and interpretation are explored in the context of dream analysis. In an attempt to understand the complexities of communicating visual ideas, as used in fields related to visual expression such as art or design, a simple experiment was conducted. The process included the collection of dream data from 6 individuals, the interpretation of those dreams in order to create 6 small representative objects and then a final review of those objects by the original participants. Through this process the researcher hope to uncover both the limitations and successes of communication of visual ideas through strictly verbal means, as well as insight into future methods for conducting similar experiments or additional testing to be done with this set of data.
