The Nature of Dreams


The dream state takes us into an unpredictable world. On the surface the dreamer is tranquil and relaxed and the dream may be pleasurable. The dreamer practices lucid dreaming.

Sarracenia (Venus fly traps) traps insects and then consumes them, using pitchers with nectar and  a slippery footing around the lip.They use colour, scent and nectar. They mirror the still composure of the dreamer but suggest that anything can change at a moments notice. 

The dream digests the random thoughts floating around the brain just as the plants digest the insects.

The waterfall persists as an entity, but is never the same and is a symbol of unconscious energy.
