The assignment (typed up word for word from the handout):
Like an unfolding dream, create a sequence of images from the free associations one image brings to your mind, The second image being inspired by the first one and so on. You will have an unfolding strip of fifteen pictures, which develops a surrealist, or dream like non narrative. With this kind of approach more active participation is asked from the viewer to grab the content, so each image should have a strong visual element in common in order to create unity and flow within the sequence. It is a good idea to work with a theme in mind.
Edit: I have decided ~happypelican is the winner and have done homework accordingly
