I Had A Dream
"I Had A Dream" was a significant project for me, that allowed me to release the hidden desire I have to be free. While I was studying at Art School last year, I was simultaneously exploring my sexuality. Inspired by and attracted to a girl who I had an infatuation for, I often dreamt about us being together. She was my muse that inspired me to explore our duality: our similar yet different personas. In the end when "I" awake, she is gone."
