Private Project


Dream and reality - on two opposite perception of the human condition. Sometimes, in special cases, a person is unable to understand what the reality is his mind: whether the mind is asleep and generates at the same time the images that currently draw human picture of the world, different from the usual, or visual receptors convey to him the true state of things in space and time. Sometimes a face that is so vague and unsteady, that man is quite able to get caught up and stuck forever in eternal sleep in the unattainable jelly color spots, mood clots and individual figures, bearing not good, not evil.
