Your Dream is My Dream


Single-channel digital video, sound, color, 17:15 minutes.

Your Dream is my Dream is a video about ancestral memory, shared identity and the collective unconscious.
According to C. G. Jung we are all born with common patterns and ancestral memories, that he calls archetypes, that are the exact same ones throughout lands and cultures.
These memories and the collective unconscious manifest itself mainly through art and dreams, particularly reoccurring dreams, that with minimal variations are indeed the same for all of us.
We are all connected and somehow we all dream the same dreams.
The chorus of reoccurring dreams in Your Dream is My Dream can be traced back to four main categories - impossibility, unpreparedness, self-consciousness and loss.
Following a specific and different logic for each category, subtitles give additional body to the voices, both in Italian and in English.
