    Dreams are a subject of mystery in everyone's lives. We may never be able to decode our dreams fully and attempting to do so is somewhat of a never-ending task. While I find dream interpretation interesting, I am most fascinated to discover similarities and unexpected connections in dreams. Mainly, in this study, I was curious to uncover patterns and/or recurring themes in my dreams to perhaps learn a little more about myself, while also attracting others to be inspired by my discoveries.

  • After studying a semester of dream theory and keeping an extensive daily log of my dreams over a course of three months, I came across some interesting connections that I wanted to pursue further. I began to organize a few main components and¬†carefully categorize each dream by type, mood, probable cause, location, etc. The number next to the subcategories listed is the total amount of dreams that relate to that particular attribute. I also provide a dream catalog with short, descriptive titles for a hint of subject matter coupled with a color legend to differentiate the dreams into nightmare, anxiety dreams and "positive" dreams. The visual language created by the intersecting lines and circular calendar is reminiscent of a dream catcher.
