DREAMSCAPES - Digital Series

“Dreams call from the imagination to the imagination and can be answered only by the imagination.” James Hillman 

Hypnagogia is the transitional state between wakefulness and sleep in which a random breaking down of our reality manifests into speckles, lines, patterns, forms and figurative contents. Images are usually fleeting and given to very rapid change until a gradual transition will lead to fragmentary dreams and imagined scenes.

Dream state is considered our most unbridled creative time because of the new associative possibilities occurring in dreams. 'Even without waking dream recall, changes within associative networks produced by the brain mechanisms of dream construction leave brain networks that can be reactivated at a later time, leading to new creative insights.' Robert Stickgold in Creativity of the dream and sleep state 

Dreamscapes digital series are composed through processes of deconstructions and reconstructions similar to hypnagogia. I use digitality to rapidly and often accidentally fragment, layer, juxtapose and glitch photographic images coming from my daily life.  Dreamscapes combine analogues and digital textures or patterns I create with images from fortuitous moments, synchronicities and memories. These digital compositions are altered and transformed again and again, bypassing the control of the conscious mind, until they shape into an imaginary landscape that can be figurative or abstract, or a hybrid of both. They invite the viewer to also wander into their own  associations and interpretations.

The rapid digital flow of experimentations associated with repetitive processes of deconstructions and reconstructions creates a fertile incubator for my creative process, allowing new and unexpected aesthetic possibilities to emerge. Accidents become instrumentalized and inspire new works. I see this digitalised process in direct continuity with the surrealist and fluxus movements, allowing a direct outpour from the rich unconscious layers of the psyche through free associations. 

Dreamscapes series are available in limited editions in NFTs, Giclée prints, aluminium Dibond and light boxes, shipping worldwide.
