Materials

Dreams feel like a distorted mirror of reality. To help communicate this idea, I used materials such as reflective mylar, vellum, and transparencies to help communicate this ethereal quality.


 












Pacing

Dream reports become more distorted in each section publication progresses - a nod to how memory is fickle, especially with dreaming.
