My Thesis is about Dream.

For me, Dream has been another world where I can experience another feeling and situation which is different from the reality. So I want to bring the images and feeling from the dreams to the reality. This desire drives me to bring this question. “Can I recreate my dream?”

A dream is made of our everyday life. During we are awakened, we see, hear, and feel a lot of things in reality. Those are too much to remember. So during we are sleeping, our brain arranges this. Sort out memories and put into the long term memory box from the temporary memory box. Our dream is made during this situation. While sorting out the memories our conscious mind loses some pieces of our memory which is not put into a long term memory box. These debris will be shown up in our dream and they change their image and function of themselves with unrealistic way. I want to focus on this part more for my project.

Followed by Gaston Bachelard, there is a terminology, material imagination. This means that there are two kinds of imaginations, formal imagination and material imagination. The material imagination is created from the formal imagination and filtered by weltanschuung, the way of view the world. For example, our imagination of light will be different each other. I think the way of absorbing reality and showing in dream mechanic is same as this. The imagination in dream will be filtered by our weltanschauung and changed, And, while we are telling or expressing the story of dream, the imagination will be filtered by our interpretation and changed their meaning and image again. The object is constantly changed by different filter.

So I want to build a prototype which has same mechanic with this. I created a box, which has 4 different filters. So there is only one object inside of the box, but people can see the different images from the filters.

My final project’s structure will be this. One object. and creating 4 images. There are different kinds of filters which has different meaning. And one of the filter, I want to put one interaction into one filter which can let participant also can be a filtered of themselves. The sensor will be pulse sensor of brain wave sensor, so the imagination will be changed by their status.

Personally, the narrative is the most important thing in this project, so now I am more concentrating on the narrative part. And hopefully, create great story and express on my project.

My thesis is about Dream.

Personally, I dream everyday. My dream has been my another world for me, which gives me a lot of interesting story. Since I was little young, I have wanted to recreate my dream. It can be a writing a story or can be a drawing or installation.

A dream is made of our everyday life. During we are awakened, we see, hear, and feel a lot of things in reality. Those are too much to remember. So during we are sleeping our brain arranges this. Sort out memories and put into the long term memory box from the temporary memory box. Our dream is made during this situation. While sorting out the memories our conscious mind loses some pieces of our memory which is not put into a long term memory box. The “Self”, which is beyond the consciousness and unconsciousness, sends a letter to us at night, to let us know what we lose and forget. So we can think our dream as a signal from our inner self to make our life better. My thesis goal is to make people rethink their life again and find what they are losing through dream, and ultimately build their life better.

There are two interesting features of dream for me.

First thing is that dreams reflect our condition and situation into the dream. When our feet is cold during sleeping, the dream reflects this condition. In my case, I dreamed heavy rain poured in the old house, when I woke up, it was a heavy rainy night, and my window was opened. It was so interesting for me that dream reflected my situation, but it was different way to express.

The second thing is that he expression of dream. The situation and expression of dream is so real and in the same thine it is surreal. Just like my heavy rainy house dream. This characteristic makes dream fantastic and marvellous. Now I am researching how artists have expressed the dream visually through installations, painting, movie, photography, and etc. I try to set my style of expressing my dream visually, and hopefully, recreate my dream interestingly.
