        • What is it?: In this piece every scene represents a dream like situation. It feels like a surrealistic picture with many different stories and colours but still in one frame, hanging on the same wall. In a dream tension and ambiance travels from one place to another, it is very real but blurry at the same time. You feel strongly that you are at a certain place, your whole body feels it, but all of a sudden it shifts and you are somewhere different.
