Dream Detritus

Discarded 35mm motion picture film is chemically treated, contact and optically printed to create a visually dense collage. The conceptual framework for the piece is based on Freud’s theories of dream interpretation; in this case the mind’s recollection of sight and sound upon entering the dream state is mimicked through image and sound processing. Experiences are condensed and displaced, and are represented by abstract symbols.
