Hypnagogia is the experience of the transitional state from wakefulness to sleep. In this state, our conscious and unconscious minds work together to create our own individualized dream languages. This language forms a metaphor for our waking lives providing insight into often overlooked aspects of our personalities and inner storytellers. Hypnagogia explores the fleeting connections between the metaphors we form in dreams and their roles in our waking lives culminating in a series of surreal, large scale photographs based on the dream narratives of others.
