Humans and other mammals usually have an
auditory organ of perception (ear), an auditory
organ of expression (vocal tract) and visual
organ of perception (eye).
These organs are similar to electromagnetic
recording and projection devices:
We have two microphones (ears), a speaker
(vocal tract), and two cameras (eyes).
However, we lack a visual expression organ
whose function corresponds to of a monitor.
As a comparison, the „metachrosis“ process
by reptiles, fishes and cephalopods acts like a
monitor on skin.
Nevertheless we have the ability to imagine, to
create mental images and to think visually. The
most concentrated form of visual thinking is
Research Question 1:
Is the „Dream“ the missing visual expression
organ, still in its evolution process?
Research Question 2:
Is it possible that visual arts developed as a
prosthesis for this missing visual expression
Research Question 3:
If the dream and visual arts are derived from
the same visual expression necessity, are they
similar enough to make transformations
between them? In other words, is it possible to
reproduce a dream as an artwork and produce
an artwork in a dream?
Research Question 4:
„Virtual Reality“ technologies are today on the
brink of reproducing the reality. Can the tools
of Virtual Reality be used to reproduce dream
scenes and dream phenomena as well?
Research Question 5:
Dream is a medium of intrapersonal
communication. But can we use it also for
interpersonal communication through artistic
replications or through arriving brain to brain
Research Question 6:
What can artistic research on dreams
contribute to media studies -and possibly to
