Installation artist Josée Dubeau collaborated on this urban alternative environment – a suspended cabin intended as a dreamlike getaway. The recycled Dream Shelter is a collage that uses the debris of demolished houses and buildings, discarded industrial material, tent canvases, tossed away furniture and rejected materials from the consumer society. (See more about the Panorama Shed project, here.)
As dreams become even more vital in a world under the influence of globalization, Panorama Shed promotes personal contact as it emerges offering vernacular platforms for informal meetings, exchanges and creativity. –Artist Statement

Fabulous. what a great idea and beautiful installation.
Yes, really unusual and very beautiful.
My Dad was a carpenter, and I always thought his
woodwork was art. My latest series of collage/paintings is called “Old Buildings Speak”. I think a dream-like secure habitat is on lots of our minds. Nice Work! Mariannelarsenreninger.com
Woodwork truly is art, agree. Interesting work you do. Art clearly runs in the family.
I kinda thought you might like this one!
