The piece Dream by Alexandra Llorens and Nils O’Swald is based on their research and interest in the function of dreams and a theory that our dreams are deeply inspired by our own reality.
This theory postulates that dreams could act as a set-up for threats or worrying situations in order to better prepare ourselves for them in real life, A bit like a vaccine that triggers the production of adaptive antibodies to protect against possible future viruses.
On the other hand, our past would be reactivated, and our memories consolidated. The Dreamer in one’s loop of thoughts, preoccupied with one’s own world. In search of balance, creates one’s own perception of reality, developing one’s own strategies in order to survive and not to collapse.
