The Dreamer

The Dreamer is an experimental video that explores what happens inside of someone’s brain in the process of dreaming.

Dreams are intuitive, spontaneous products of the dreamer’s unconscious psyche. The content and purpose of dreams are not fully understood, although they have been a topic of scientific, philosophical and religious interest throughout history.

On the other hand, technology is exact, precise. Its aim is to create perfect, intelligent machines that can solve humanity’s problems.
But these machines and technologies are not neutral facilitators: they embody our politics and biases, they extend beyond the boundaries of nations and exceed the understanding of even their creators. As a result, we understand less and less about the world as these powerful technologies assume more control over our everyday lives.

The modern mind wants everything to be clear, well-organized and to serve a specific purpose. But humans easily forget that life is more like a dream – spontaneous, nonlinear and unpredictable.
