“ At some certain moment, I have experienced the feeling that as an overwhelming sense of familiarity with something that shouldn't be familiar at all. At this moment, I feel I have lived through the present situation before. Personally, I believe this experience is a kind of ‘memory collage’ which transfers and re-arranges information from my dream or my past experience. ”

I create this structure as my dreamcatcher to attracts and catches all sorts of dreams and thoughts into its webs. Each ball in the knot is a subconscious container. I recorded both my dream and the events happened in the daily life from August 30 to September 30. Then I translate them into visual animations in different styles. I’d like to add some parts of my body (e.g. eyes) into these animations since I think the unconscious has the habit of borrowing images from the external situation and using those images to symbolize something that is going on inside myself.
