I started to put the images together with some cross dissolves between them. Straight cuts didn’t have the right feel “Dreaming of reality should still have some sort of soft dreamlike sense to it” But it still felt like a slide show of very dull holiday snaps. Some of the images also seemed to important. The work isn’t about the content of the images they were just meant to add to the idea of the whole piece not be about a specific thing.
I decided to overlay multiple images over the top of others. Suddenly the images stopped being snaps of things and became something else, my random placement gave some great imagery and confused things nicely. This felt a little dreamlike while still being of traffic and building and all the mundane reality one often never even notices while contemplating a deeper reality.
Happy with his direction I started ordering these images with a real purpose.
