Cercle magazine Dreams



Until further notice, most living beings, unlike machines, have the particularity of not being binary and of dreaming. The conscious and unconscious states exist, and dreams have the ability of slipping from one world to the other. This fascinating permeability gives an individual the capacity of projecting himself, imagining and hoping. In the day time, dreams are ambitions, desires or hopes. At night, for some, dreaming is a way into the world of spirits, the afterlife or even the future, whereas for others it’s something absurd, terrifying or a way to switch their brain off. What a vast subject... Whether it’s on a collective or individual scale, dreams are at once a goal, a tenet for analysis and research, an answer, an inspiration or an incongruity. Whether you are attached to them or find it hard to remember them, they remain present, yet impalpable. You can only see them through visual representations or tales and when you look closely, some constructions bear the marks of them. By taking the time to pry into the dreams of others, this new issue of Cercle explores the infinite grey area between day and night.
