Dream vs Nightmare
Sculpture

I decided to go for a simple approach when conveying the theme of ‘dream vs nightmare’. I wanted to create a dreamy mood, while having the dream and nightmare elements juxtapose each other. The uneven pieces of cardboard mimicked the rocky and uneasy feeling; the overgrown branches and claws symbolised the feeling of being trapped and engulfed in horrifying experiences. To add a playful mood, I added tiny yellow balls ‘springing’ out of clouds, inspired by floating lanterns. Returning to the theme I chose, I decided to juxtapose the quality of the elements; the smoothness and ’fluffiness’ of the clouds contrasting the rough and pointy texture of the claws. Tying in the concept of ‘light’, I utilised the negative spaces between the claws, branches and the cloud to give it a more airy mood and I ‘‘played’ with the papers by twisting it to create its rough texture and ducted it for the large cotton candy cloud.
