Memories that come to us in dream states are self-constructed, fantastical. They are isolated fragments, focused flashes of imagery, idealised or bastardised – never truly ‘real’ at all. Dream memories are best sought, or at least easiest caught, from daydreams.
In certain moods, at certain times, the ‘real’ world dissolves and, somehow, an object becomes the visual and emotional essence of itself. Through the daydream, it becomes the idealised memory of itself right then and there. A memory forming as it is witnessed; a sly, secret complicity between object and viewer.
