“Fleeting Dream” crystallises the experience of the rush of heady freedom that a dreamer experiences just before awakening. Hanging bubbles, each captures a dream, suspended in time and space as a memory of freedom, perpetually drifting over an iridescent textile landscape. A dream holds the power of bravery, of freedom and of imagination.
