Photographs made for the cycle represent exploration of the unconscious emotions and obsessive illusions hidden inside the visions of dreams. They are an echo of the pictures that appear under our eyelids while sleeping, when all anxieties and fears assume a visual form. The work concerns the inability to control one’s own life, the random chance which rules it, an awareness of the unavoidable fate, decay. The title refers to the Rapid Eye Movement sleep phase, characterized by elevated brain activity and the appearance of dreams.
