David Woodard with William S. Burroughs in Lawrence, Kansas, photo by John Aes-Nihil.

Woodard lived in Lawrence, Kansas in 1997 and visited William Burroughs regularly. Woodard made the dreamachines displayed at a major LA exhibition of Burroughs’ paintings, Ports of Entry, and the one used at Burroughs’ funeral. He has since auctioned off one machine through Sotheby’s, and he’s now writing a book on the Dreammachine, the flicker phenomena and other unorthodox ideas and inventions, to be published by Feral House at some point in time.
