Summary This text interwoven with artworks by Elizabeth McQueen explores the act of writing and this writer’s search for a narrative form which, after Kafka, fuses dream and reality. Escaping from the back door of my PhD research, which has entered such liminal realities as sleepwalking and autism as a way of challenging familiar boundaries of western normative thought, this text explores a slightly different boundary transgression: a terrifying fusion of reality and writing when late one dark (but not stormy) night a character from my novel appeared at my back window.
Notes 'Sleepwalking into the mirror : panic and the thin skin of a writer' is a textual work, as well as visual artwork and music performance. It features original text alongside digital photographs of a series of paintings, 'Reflections and Observations on sitting with hills' by artist Elizabeth McQueen. Tony Pain performed the musical improvisation and Tai McQueen was the photographer and projector of artworks for the performance of the work. 'Sleepwalking into the mirror : panic and the thin skin of a writer' was performed at Double Dialogues conference, Art and Pain II – Anatomy and Poetics, University of Melbourne, 9 October 2004.
