Nightmare - Daydream

 

- An introspective look through deluded realism and the break in the mind between truth and fiction -

Looking into this series I had one goal in mind. To tell a fairytale different from the others. This is a series from the perspective of the wickedness that lurks in the shadows. How she has been defamed by foreign eyes, revered by some but feared by even more.  In reality, she wants nothing more than to exist in the regular world like anyone else. 

 

The darkness has always carried such heavy sadness trailing her footsteps because she's never known anything else. You'll watch her piece herself into a new narrative, not quite a nightmare or a daydream, but somewhere in between.

 

Accompanying this series is a string of poetry written over the span of two years about the darkness and her journey. From personifying evil to finding peace. This is her story.
