'Morpheus is an ongoing project i have been working since January about dreaming and the creativity of the unconscious. There are many theories on why we have dreams. Some suggest that our unconscious imagination is linked to our mental wellbeing, and so dreams are a way of emotionally processing information. Research suggests that dreams brought on by unique circumstances (like the Coronavirus pandemic we are currently living though) tend to be much more vivid and intense. I thought it would be fun to test this theory by recording the quarantine dreams of 15 different individuals during lock down, comparing and analysing the nature of their dreams. I wanted to explore if (and how) these unique recent events have been manifesting in the subconscious. The results have inspired a series of different shoots that will be published in the near future.
