Deepest fears and distresses started to have a meaning, when I began to analyze my dreams during psychoanalytic sessions. It’s hard to make sense of what it means, practically, that there is so much more behind rational thinking.
Freud made a similitude between oneiric image and photography that stuck in my mind. He said that both are windows to a world outside the field of view, that they are just apparently casual and in both cases we need to rationalize trough speech.
By self-portraits, made mostly inside my house, I try to recreate the idea and the feeling behind the dream.
