Dream: Subjective time, Internal space
(75 unconsciousness = 25 imaginations + 25 memories + 25 desires)
'75 unconsciousness = 25 imaginations + 25 memories + 25 desires' retells the dream stories of people in a provocative screen-based interactive installation. Based on design research of dreams, it is not just visualizing people's memories, desires, and imaginations in their dreams, but demonstrating their inner voices through re-presenting, re-imaging in a metaphoric and poetic manner.
My ultimate research question about dreams was ‘how do dreams encourage people to enhance their imaginations or evoke inner desire, imagination and memory?’ In order to understand people’s unconsciousness through their dreams, and how external personalities are internalized in their dreams, I made survey questions and sent the survey out to the people around me.
‘MEMORIES IN THE FUTURE, IMAGINATIONS IN THE PAST’
Based on my concept and people’s answers, I was able to create a time line of the dream world. It is other spaces which are parallel to the real world. I demonstrated in my research that people’s memories are based on the synesthesia which is interactions with more than one sense of the time and space and their experiences in the past.
