Daydreaming is an inward focus & attention. It’s a reflective skill that is important to our development & wellbeing. Daydreaming impacts the way we build memories, make meaning & transfer learning into new contexts. The collection aims to give us these peaceful moments while emerging with the sky through 3 different experiences.

INTRO THE DREAM VIEW 2021

“EVERYTHING THE BRAIN INTERPRETS, IT INTERPRETS IN CONTEXT. (...) WHEN WE ARE LOOKING DIRECTLY UP AT THE SKY & WE ARE MISSING OUR NORMAL FRAME OF THE HORIZON & THE CITYSCAPE, WE ARE JUST SEEING THE LIGHT IT SELF. WHAT THAT CAUSES IS AN OUT OF CONTEXT EXPERIENCE WHERE WE FEEL LIKE WE ARE NOW PART OF THAT ATMOSPHERE. WE ARE TIED RIGHT INTO THAT.”

The Dreamers personal Dream View Drawings revealed great reflection upon what makes them happy & what they value in life. Connection to nature was of great importance. It made the dreamers feel free & relaxed, but it also left them with a closer connection to themselves. Drawings that showed frustration & negative emotions showed a great sense of constructive thinking, leaving the dreamers with visions to make the future better than the present, by practising selfcare & societal changes.

Also with its changing colours and clouds sky is very interesting and beautiful to observe as it’s never the same :) “

It might be positive though... at least I won’t feel myself stuck at home for working reasons. The sky has always been the thing that I’ve taken more for guaranteed. But whenever you visit new places it is always slightly different. For some reason I sometimes speak to it thinking there might be somebody listening. It always happen when I’m alone, mainly middle August. Isn’t the sky the first thing you ask “WHY” to? “

Statement: Heaven is never the same. It changes appearance, clouds appear - disappear again. A bit like people you meet. And yet it is still the same, stable sky. The stars are the same - they are still where they used to be. The moon is likely to appear. So the sky can actually describe our lives: We have people we love to see who are always there (the Moon and stars). And then we meet people who only fleetingly touch, but still touch us (the clouds). “

The economic system keeps us all trapped in the hamster wheel. So how do we stop it? Does society in fact take away the freedom from us that heaven symbolizes for me Heaven can make me both calm and anxious. Calm with his beautiful colors and knowledge of there is much that is greater than me. Anxious because there is so much that I do not understand.”

DREAMER 10

LISE VESTER

“Feeling: I sort of feel I am seeing the universe or the outer space and the more I look at it the more I feel I am closer to it. It feels calm and awesome. And it makes me respectful to nature. It also makes feel really relaxed and peaceful. Also astonished by the amount of stars that I would not be able to see in Beijing (you know Beijing is often polluted and smoggy). Thought: I feel that I am thinking my relationship with the universe and the earth’s relationship with the universe. It makes me think of my favourite film Interstellar that talks about the space travel for finding new home planet in the outer solar system and the concept of time changes when speed and gravity changes during space travel. I am really wondering if there is another planet among them that we human might move to years ago. (Kind of fantasy lol).

114

My relationship to the sky is that I love the cloud and sun changes the sky shape and colour. It is awesome to admire its beauty as it constantly changes. And I feel that looking at sky makes me often feel calmer, broader and a little bit nostalgic sometimes when its cloudy and I happen to be in grey mood. It is almost a mental therapy. It slows city people down. Unfortunately Beijing’s sky is often ugly with yellow and grey pollutions. Not the kind of beautiful ones you can see in Europe or San Francisco, California where I lived in.”

Myself and the world can be separated into invisible too. Statement: I really like to stare at something for a long time, but I didn’t do that for many years, as it is regarded by the world as unworthy and sinful. Since I entered school, I have hardly had this ’staring luxury’ because of the pace of life, air pollution (can’t see so much stars) and the funny guilty feeling. I feel the life pressure makes most people live in a condom. Feeling the world has become a luxury, which a primitive man can do in his whole life.”

DREAMER 13 “Feeling: Powerlessness. Thought: Thinking that the sky can be calm and violent at the same time. It’s a bit like that picture of a train where it runs the way you think it runs. Statement: To me, the sky, and in particular the clouds, is a symbol of the inevitable changeability we all share. Maybe even a metaphor for time. A linear truth that no one can change and that makes us all powerless. But when one realizes that with powerlessness comes freedom, the clouds with their unique formations and different colours can bring peace and freedom. Heaven is always there, for everyone - and that means something to me.”

To see literal landscapes from outside a plane window overlooking miles of soft white fields, longing for the day I can finally walk upon them; to explore its vast plains, its tall mountains, and play the creatures that form in its swells. I long for the day where I can have the choice to leave the earth and find my home high above, far from human conflict, borders, labels, and the mundane”

DREAMER 20 “The significance of heaven for me: Heaven is a cathedral that gives me experiences, depth of mine in thoughts and fantasies and dreams of life and death. The sky is also a gallery of colours, cloud formations, both in the form of drama and tranquillity. I see art played out in the form of colours and cloud formations. I see e.g. a lot of different formations of animals and humans in the clouds. I see landscapes with depth in, almost in 3D with mountain ranges. The vault of the sky above the earth creates a horizon out to infinity, where I am also deceived into believing that the earth is flat. But what is there out there in infinity? I am fascinated by the function of the sky, as the birds’ transport routes, both short daily flights and followed on migrations. The sky tells me about the seasons and the weather. The sky contains the sun, the moon, the planets, the stars and the clouds. Along with the sun colours, the sky colours the sea and the earth. I am touched by the reality and spectacle of heaven. I become solemn, thoughtful, grateful, focused, reverent, feeling a spiritual experience. The sky provides experiences whether it is night or day.”

It is just beautiful, the sound of things beating by the wind. The sounds of the down poor rain ! I was so happy about that because I was quite stressed before. The thunder and the storm is like a relief. The sense awaken in a way. I was standing on the balcony for a while. “Where am I” was a kind of question that i was thinking. Shanghai is too big and brutal. I felt surreal. The sound of the environment got clearer, then I was into a tranquil feeling. Just quite and beautiful.”

It felt like the world had stopped moving for that one moment. I remember taking some deep breaths and almost regretting taking a photo instead of being present. I was along but looking at the sunset made me feel a sense of belonging to a foreign space.”

“Many thoughts fly through my head as I look at the sky. And at the same time, it is as if all one’s thoughts disappear. It depends on the time and place, because it can also reinforce my feelings. For the past year, I have been living my life in Vietnam. An adventure without equal. Often I swim in the pool in the evening while floating around and looking up at the sky. While I am in this moment, I often think about how grateful I am, both for being where I am at the moment in the moment, but also how grateful I am for the wonderful family and friends I have in my life. They mean everything in the world. Right now they are sitting on the other side of the earth and that sets the mind in motion. Especially in the peace of mind when I look up at the sky. It reminds me of how big and wild the world is and how small we humans are, but how much love fills. I am extremely adventurous and can not get enough of experiencing, but Corona has unfortunately put a stop to many things (especially being able to travel home and visit my family and vice versa) therefore I now feel that the time has come to go home again. The sky can be both beautiful, mysterious and differentiating. My experience of heaven tells me how many amazing opportunities one has in life. You have endless possibilities if you give them the chance and dare to transgress your limits and go after your dreams instead of just dreaming. - You don’t know what you loose if you don’t try

142

My relationship with heaven is generally good and positive! The sky is fascinating but can also be mysterious and infinite. The emotions in the body control what experience I have of heaven depending on what mood and feeling I have. Heaven helps to keep my spirits up, no matter what thoughts I may have. It creates PEACE - in short”

An invaluable gift & insight that felt quite powerful, overwhelming & full of hope.

I hope the Dream View Collection can bring daydreaming & the sky closer to people & that it will empower people to practise self-care by taking small mindful moments during the day.
