An artist’s dream, a dream’s artist

17 September 2022 - 12:30

Highcross Leicester, Lower East Mall opposite Footlocker

Event duration: 60 minutes 

Have you ever had a dream, but knew you were dreaming in it? If so, you were lucid dreaming. In this state, a person can more or less take control of their dream's narrative, guiding the course of their subconscious. 

Artist Dave Green uses this unique state of consciousness as a source of inspiration for his art. As he dreams, his subconscious fills in the gaps and creates line drawings. 

He memorises these doodles, recreating them upon waking up.

Working in collaboration with sleep and dream scientists, Dave uses his drawings to explore questions related to our minds in their dream state. 

Join him to try it out and explore how we see in dreams and who the other people in our dreams might be.
