South Korea, Seoul, Kookmin University, 2019
I studied and created ornaments based on my dreams, connecting the conscious and unconscious worlds. I analysed the psychological meanings of the symbols in my dreams and connected them to the emotions I felt. I made note of the powerful images that came up in my dreams and turned them into drawings. I then extracted the images I felt most strongly about and exaggerated, distorted, rearranged and repeated them, creating a surrealistic quality.
Although these dreams are personal, everyone can empathise because the symbols are universal. It was cathartic to express my repressed desires and emotions through this work and it allowed me to explore and understand my inner self more deeply. Dreams are a resting place where one can imagine freely and go beyond reality. As long as humans are curious about the unconscious world, there will still be many stories that dreams can tell.
