Continuous Dreams 1

My exploration aimed to reveal the true feelings of people by unearthing the details of life. For this series, I paid attention to anxious dreams, because emotions in dreams tend to be easier to show in a real, clear and sensitive way. 

In this series, one of them shows a dreamworld with a single house that stood on a wide field with heavy clouds. In the dream, I felt I was surrounded by infinite pressure. The dark clouds seemed to touch the ground. Some things unpredictable were about to happen.

The other one describes a maze-like dreamland. The bright color brings uncanny or mysterious feelings. The mountains that arranged in boxes looks never ending. The arrows tell you about the direction, but you are never able to find your way to get out here.

Continuous Dreams 3

My exploration aimed to reveal the true feelings of people by unearthing the details of life. For this series, I paid attention to anxious dreams, because emotions in dreams tend to be easier to show in a real, clear and sensitive way. 

The series show cities with crowded buildings. Those buildings were all in dark colors like deep red, black and dark purple. I was running between these buildings and trying to find an exit. However, I failed. It looked like a maze and I was lost in it. So I found a wood frame to act as the exit. And the red, black and purple yarns serve as a metaphor for the endless cities that are crowded with buildings.  The yarn that was stuffed into the frame represents the endless buildings blocking the exit.
