In 2013 I began working on an ongoing installation called “Like Remembering a Dream the Day After…” which I am still working on today. My starting point is a memory of a dream, which morphs over time. It is an evolving installation that grows and takes different forms over time and describes the memory of a dream that becomes more abstract as years go on. Each piece in the installation is an artifact of the experience of the dreamscape.
The title describes the feeling one gets when they wake up from a dream and it still feels very lucid. As the day goes on the memory dissipates and becomes more abstract. I think of memory like this in general- awake or asleep, memory becomes distorted over time. We choose what we remember and this affects how we see things. We also choose what we see and this changes our perspective. There is no arrangement of facts that is purely objective and therefore our memory is stretched to conform to our perception of reality. Each installation becomes a different glimpse of the same dream.
