ART FEATURE: Dreams Passed

Writing and artwork by Hannah Kline and Jessie Li White 

Dreams Passed is a photo series that is centered around the human experience and dreams. The images in the series show a crisp yet ephemeral dreamscape that, after passing through time, exists solely through the record of these photos. The images capture and reconsider the elusive nature of dreams while also incorporating elements that otherwise exist in a persisting reality (most notably the human figures and the photo set).

The product of this photoshoot resembles a small window into the intimate human experience. It is said that the people in our dreams are people from our own realities, and that in dream consciousness, our brains lack the ability to fabricate anything we haven’t already seen. To foreground my personal experiences, I chose my friends as models, because they often appear in my dreams and they are important and enriching to my everyday life
