How will those removed nightmares look like?



[Catch-ed Dream] is inspired by a dream catcher, which is a native ornament made in the belief of removing nightmares and giving sweet dreams. This artwork is started with the curiosity, ‘then how will those removed nightmares look like?’. Grammatically ‘caught’ is the right word, however to give a similarity with the name ‘dream catcher’, this work notate the term as ‘catch-ed’.

[Catch-ed Dream](문법상 catch의 과거형인 caught가 맞지만, 모티브가 되는 ‘드림캐쳐’와의 발음상 유사성을 위해 catch-ed로 표기합니다)은 악몽을 걸러주고 좋은 꿈을 꾸게 해준다는 의미로 만들어 걸어두던 토속 장신구인 ‘드림캐쳐’에서 영감을 받아, ‘그렇다면 걸러진 악몽은 어떻게 생겼을까?’라는 생각으로 시작된 작업이다.
