Are you dreaming ? by pwassonne Are you dreaming ? by pwassonne
Sorry for the poor image quality, I decided to take this picture at the last moment and I wasn't very careful. I took 2 pictures in total and this one was my least favorite because it shows only the piece and not its context. However, the other picture was so blurred, there was nothing I could do to save it.

I did this today at the deviantMEET in Paris, France. (The event was in a place called Mecano Bar, which was quite an interesting setting - also, big place, lots of people, loud noise... still, the Meet was awesome).

I was doodling when I suddenly had the weird idea of writing "Are you dreaming ?" on a piece of paper, as some kind of joke. This is how it turned out. I put it there for people to see (there was a piece of used tape on the wall, so I reused it). It was not until a while later that I realized it could be considered art, since it is meant to get people to question reality, and as I understood this, I decided it WAS art. This is why I am posting it. Even later, I remembered to do a reality check myself, but it turned out, I wasn't dreaming. ^^

(For those who don't know, it is actually possible for a dreamer to become aware that they are currently dreaming. It is called lucid dreaming. Some people do this naturally, others don't, but anyone can learn. Just Google it.)

The small blue card at the bottom is a personal card I made in order to promote my dA gallery. Since I don't have any big project to promote, it was a little awkward, but I don't really care. Since I am not selling anything, what I hope to get from this is mainly comments and criticism, because I need them in order to improve my work.

I will gladly answer questions about this piece if you have any. Comments and criticism are also welcome.

ça consiste en quoi un "reality check"? :D

Test de réalité, en français. Ce sont des gestes qui te permettent de vérifier si tu es ou non en train de rêver. C'est le même principe que quand on se pince, sauf qu'en fait se pincer ça ne marche pas super bien, alors on en a d'autres. Plus d'infos ici [link] ^^

excellent article! je ne sais pas si je fais des rêves lucides ou autre chose, par contre je sais quand je rêve. comme quand je fais une méditation en gros. avec les années je préfère la méditation je dois dire, les barrières sont plus faciles à mettre et c'est moins "le bordel" si j'ose dire.

Tu sais quand tu rêves, c'est-à-dire ? Parce qu'un rêve lucide c'est exactement ça : savoir que l'on est en train de rêver. ^^

alors c'est ça. j'ai travaillé il y a quelques années avec les rêves justement. mais comme je passais plus de temps à tenter de comprendre mes rêves qu'à en apprendre quelque chose, j'ai arrêté. actuellement je sais donc lorsqu'un rêve me délivre un message ou si c'est un rêve *purge* lorsque je rêve. Mais je préfère nettement la méditation pour travailler. j'utilise beaucoup cette technique pour réfléchir, pour l'inspiration, pour régler des problèmes.
