It is believed that dreams help us to process information, to solidify moments in memory and in this way they are similar to photographs.
This series of paintings is based on photographs taken at night. The camera’s settings are not adjusted to the dark, so at first the image appears black. The image is then opened in an editing software and the brightness is increased, pulling forms from the shadow.
The faults in the photographs attest to the process, as low lighting causes digital noise. It raises the question of the medium’s reliability as a recorder of the past and is therefore the focus of this work.
