How many times have you had a conversation that began with, “Wow, did I have a weird dream last night!”? But what made the dream seem “weird”? Incongruous subjects and behaviors? Ambiguity? Odd humor? Veiled feelings of dread or even horror?
Here I attempt to capture the “weird” character of dreams with real-world scenes. A few were created specifically for this subject but most are calved from other projects or from casual snap-shooting. None are synthetic digital creations, which raises the question: Are our dream images “weird” at all or are they actually scenes that we’ve simply not noticed during the waking day?
I encourage you to first view this set of images serially with the “slideshow” facility or by clicking the first image and stepping through the set from beginning to end.
I hope you enjoy them and I welcome your comments.
