For Dreams, the challenge was to produce a magazine without ink, instead rendering images via a high-tech laser-cutting process in which artworks (by Simon Periton, Rachel Whiteread, and Nick Knight, among others) were literally burned into paper. Slipped into a book of multicolor foil, the resulting pages were haunting in their shadowy nature — much like dreams are in theirs. The young girl in Adam Fuss’s photo took on a ghostly quality, barely perceptible until the laser-cut is reflected onto the foil page and the image suddently reverts back to photography. Perception and reflection became the game for each image. In a year-end roundup in The New York Times that surveyed the greatest ideas of 2004, Michael Kimmelman selected DREAMS as a breakthrough, writing that the issue’s pages were “vaguely akin to holographs or old daguerrotypes, as is the implicit magic that comes with finding a face or flower, as if conjured up, out of the darkness.”
