THE DALMATIAN, 2013
I wrote down in a diary every dream I remembered throughout a year and I read it some time afterwards, becoming aware of the residual relation to reality there is in dreams and how everyday events, conflicts, circumstances or moods are revealed. Most of the time, verbal language is replaced by symbolic visual forms that, in spite of being odd and ambiguous, reveal the deepest regions of ourselves –our wishes, fears, feelings, emotions and beliefs–, and address the complex bonds we establish with the loved ones or those we interact with.
The Dalmatian is a portraiture series where I bring into images the unconscious information I create in dreams through symbols, objects and people, to reflect on who I am and how my relationship with others is. The title refers to the dog that appears in the last dream I wrote down.
