Waking Life is a homage to the disappearing monochrome dream world.

Some researchers suppose that it was the childhood exposure to black-and-white photography, movies and later television that made the world dream for almost one century in shades of grey, a phenomenon that was probably nonexistent before and that is about to disappear again. Since i have realized that i dream in black-and-white myself it has been fascinating to me. Indeed in my family in Prague we had until the late 1990s only a black-and-white TV. I don ́t miss colors in my night dreams. Their absence opens spaces for imagination. My daydreams on the other hand are lacking all colors as i rather feel than see them. But also here the black-and-white visualization feels natural. For me, a photograph is a result of two worlds, the outer world and my subconscious and sensual inner world, melting into one image. A kind of magic. The series explores my lucid dreams, daydreams and this very alchemy of photography.

A haunting dream hit the windshield
On the road to the subconscious mind
With no driving licence
What a ride
