Freud argued that dreams ultimately provide a detachment from daily reality: that through darkness and the act of getting into bed, we shut out all external stimuli to allow us to sleep. In order to retrieve images from a dream, we must rely solely on memory. Upon waking, we instinctively attempt to organise the fragmented images left over from the dream into narrative form, as a way of making sense of our experience. Remembering constitutes fiction; each time we replay an experience or revisit a memory, we rework the structure and narrative. This work aims to challenge the ideologies shaping how we remember and understand our dreams.'
