What Dreams are Made Of

Publication, Dream Index
Most of us know what dreaming feels like, but recounting a dream is very difficult. This publication begs the question: How can we better ‘capture’ our dreams to realize their patterns and learn about ourselves?

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.



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