As You Dreamt It

"As You Dreamt It" is a collaboration between dreamers and the creative community to bring dreams out of the dark for all to see. Some of Australia's finest photographers have helped recreate and capture people's recurring dreams exactly as they were dreamt. A unique exhibition delving into the images that we see when we close our eyes at night and what it all may mean.

I usually don’t wake up from a slumber remembering my dreams. I hardly remember any of them actually. But for the past couple of years, I have had one recurring dream that leaves me… slightly panicked when I’m wake up from it. I won’t go into details but let’s just say, it involves snakes. *shivers*

Some people I know have much more horrific dreams that leads to alarming actions in the night. Think walking, fighting, kicking glass, and forms of abuse – all whilst their eyes are closed as their subconscious is telling them to do other things. Pretty scary when you’re hearing the finer details of these ‘dreams’.

A unique Sydney exhibition has chosen to explore the world of recurring dreams. Calling upon a few daring photographers to bring those most private and mysterious thoughts out of the dark and on to the stark gallery walls, As You Dreamt It, delves into the dreamer’s mind to recreate their visions exactly as they were first experienced, when their eyes were closed.

Take advantage of this rare invitation to peer into the sleeping minds of others and discover the hidden meaning behind recurring visions of the weird and the wonderful, and interpret it however you want.

Prefer to peek into the keyhole of your own subconscious? Consult the on-site Dream Doctor for a private interpretation session. Maybe I should go and find out about my own recurring dream. Hmm… anyone brave enough to experience this with me?
