Dream machine’s elephant, 2007
200 x 258 cm
acrylic paint, inkjet print on canvas

Note / In late 2006 Van Warmerdam had stills of her film Dream machine printed onto canvas after seeing wispy animals and people appear in the glass every time it was screened. She saw a dog, seahorses, a bison, a bird, an elephant, a dragon and an aeroplane. She worked out how the outline of the dog could best be applied to the film still and employed this technique in all her Dream machine canvases.
