School: Manor School & Sports College
Year: Year 13
Inspiration: The topic of my work is vision, and the huge variety of ways in which different people perceive the world. This led me on to the idea of dreams, nightmares and hallucinations - things people see which aren't really there. My work attempts to record and show the viewer these moments of unreality, so they can experience it for themselves.
Title: Sweet dreams
Description: I looked at how the imagination can play tricks on you, especially when falling asleep. I took inspiration from things people are scared of and used this to recreate their worst nightmares. I was Inspired by a friend's hatred of clowns and surrealist photographers such as Duane Michals. I created this image in an attempt to scare the viewer and allow them to experience the nightmare for themselves.
