“The dream is the aquarium of night.” – Victor Hugo, Les Travailleurs de la Mer

Our dreams have been the topic of scientific, philosophical and religious interest throughout recorded history, with many theories being posited regarding their purpose and meaning. Shrouded in mystery and harbouring the ability to conjure the entire gamut of human emotions, it is no surprise that our dreamlives provide such a rich source of creative inspiration. For the artist, memories of dreamworlds and the symbolism held within, are often explored and combined with waking thoughts and emotions. It is through these creative explorations that we can come together and embark on voyages of discovery, delving into the deep ‘Aquarium of Night’.
