Dreams + Nightmares
Last year, I was taking a photo class that collaborated with a graphic design class and we were told to create and idea and write about it. My partner thought of a cool idea and that was the difference between dreams and nightmares. I thought this idea would be so amazing to tell visually!
When you dream, you are at peace. Bright and warm colors project a sense of calmness and relaxation. You feel like you are floating in the air. You think you’re not coming down ever, there is no end to this happiness.
But all of a sudden, you drop. You drop into the abyss. Dark colors and cold air ensnare your thoughts. This is the realm of nightmares. You cannot breathe, you are stuck and alone. There is no escaping. You try to wake yourself up but your mind won’t budge.
Dreams and nightmares are perfect examples of yin and yang. I tried to capture the similarities and the differences between the two.
