“Mark Rothko spoke about being enveloped by a painting, to share its existence, its passion. In “The Red Dream” the viewer hears colors and sees forms change their meaning to the music.  Every image is a mysterious reflection of the central mystery of consciousness. Rothko wanted the viewer eighteen inches away to feel the power of his art. At certain shifting and unexpected moments during “The Red Dream” the viewer may suddenly find himself exactly eighteen inches away on the other side.”
