I’ve been having a lot of stress dreams over the past month. So as a way of letting them out of my head, I decided to sketch some of the visuals that stuck with me after waking up. There were a couple of mornings where I couldn’t remember my dreams, but I still woke up with stress weighing me down. In addition to sketching, I also tried to capture the feeling of some of my dreams through photographs. There are times that I wake up in the morning feeling exhausted, because I remember every detail of my dreams and feel as though I’ve been up doing things all night. Other times, my dream memory is foggy or dark around the edges. Anyways, here is a glimpse into the depths of my mind when it’s in a stress dream state. I have to say, it’s not very pleasant.
My final image for the week really captures the level of stress that I experience in some of my dreams. My mind feels almost jagged and my heart races.
