Oneirocritica: A Dream Interpretation

Hannah Berry's avatar Hannah Berry

So much of art, maybe all art, is in some way an attempt to understand. Whether it’s something that happened to us, to someone we know, to the world around us, a dream we had, or a vision we can’t shake from our minds, sometimes it’s best explored by letting the abstract or the beautiful or intuitive take the lead. This piece, “Oneirocritica - the Interpretation of Dreams” seeks to do just that. It’s a way of trying to understand death and explore the ways in which our unconscious can play a powerful role in revealing glimpses of insight and awareness. When I think of death, I think of two equally haunting memories - one experience and one a constant dream, neither of which I feel I fully understand.
