When our bodies sleep our minds are still active. If we're lucky, we dream good dreams. Even luckier, and we remember something of that portion of our life at rest, from which we can draw inspiration. I've decided to start paying more attention to those mini stories we tell ourselves. That's how i see it.
Have you ever noticed no matter how much you try to relate a dream tp someone, the listener simply can't picture it? Our dreams, whether they are messages, subconcious thoughts, or twisted recollections of the days events are private. It's your visual, and yours alone. We each hold the intellectual rights :)
Such vivid images can be an exclusive source of material for artwork, story-telling, or any creative genre. I decided to make a neat little home for dreams I want to remember, for safekeeping.
Here's a couple of swatches:
I hesitated to share them, but they can't be analized. They're just the bit I need to make a mental vignette and nothing more; just enough to spark that view back into focus. I started by typing a few, but mostly I'll just jot down the thoughts on waking.
This is a tiny cardstock book; just 2" x 5.5". The design concept -- an intentional absence of color and a hole in each black sheet, offering a glimpse into another place -- is a nod to the pinhole cameras we made in high school photography class, and the dream-like photos they produce.
