I was invited by Simon Strong of Codex to gather together a series of articles, poetry, extracts and photos related to the design, influence and use of the Dreamachine. Contributors included long-time Gysin collaborators such as Ira Cohen, Anne Nordmann, Terry Wilson and Genesis P-Orridge, alongside a new generation of writers: Ian MacFadyen, Joe Ambrose, Simon Strong and Chris Riding. I contributed two pieces. To complete the book we included Gysin's original essay on the Dreamachine alongside Ian Sommerville's piece on flicker, plus lengthy extracts from W Grey Walter's The Living Brain (the book that inspired Gysin and Sommerville to build a dreamachine in the first place).
