It’s been a while since I am experiencing what I can best describe as a chronic emotional state of existential absence and increased sleepiness. Not long ago, as I was going through the photographic material created in the meantime, I realized that what I had in front of me was a subconscious presence, similar perhaps to the kind of presence one can claim while in the REM stage of sleep, with body been physically inert and seemingly motionless, while the brain, this unstoppable factory of biochemical reactions, is causing eyes to move sharply, rapidly, appearing to be in a certain vigilance. This is the self that dreams. She is the one living my dreams.
