About Dreams

From dreams to imagination I have been studying and playing with light, capturing traces of objects, figures.. transforming them into a symbolic interpretation…

I have been exploring perception for the past 6 years. From June 2016 I also started to research about dreams through three different school of thoughts, three different interesting perspectives: neuroscience, analytical psychology and Tibetan buddhism.

It was a long and rich process to ‘uncover’ what I really wanted out of this analysis and to find a concept to work on. I started exploring Freud’s and Jungian’s views on dreams. I went to some workshops, exhibitions, watch some videos and I read books about dreams by Robert A. Johnson, Charlie Morley and Stephen Nachmanovitch. I also did some research at DRI - Dream Research Institute in Maida Valle, London. I was able to explore the perspective of Dr. Nigel Hamilton talking about “Awakening Through Dreams”. I then decided to catalogue my own dreams, and by doing this I started an amazing inner journey that guided me to the next steps..

The concept behind this series of work is to explore and investigate the boundaries between reality, imagination and dreams, the symbolic language of the unconscious mind...
