The text is hand-cut and scanned in to give the effect of depth and to allow them to flow in a wave form, to present the brain waves we have when we sleep. The material is very thin tracing paper, which allows the text to be seen through on either side to represent the lucid dreams.
I decided to create 5 short stories, as there are 5 stages of sleep. The typeface has 5 different weights, all of which change depending on the sleep stage. Each story explains the stage of sleep and also picks out particular words. These words are given a dictionary definition. The words are explored to see what it means to dream about ‘swimming’ for example.
At the end of the story is a separate page of my scanned personal dream diary to add an element of reality to these unusual dreams.
