From the unconscious

I have been meaning to post these images By Dieter de Lathauwer for a while, but never got around to it. These images are from his series "l'introduction à l'aventure du rêve lucide" (Introduction to the adventure of the lucid dream). I have tried, but I am certain that I can not find words any better than Arthur Schopenhauer's: "How very paltry and limited the normal human intellect is, and how little lucidity there is in the human consciousness, may be judged from the fact that, despite the ephemeral brevity of human life, the uncertainty of our existence and the countless enigmas which press upon us from all sides, everyone does not continually and ceaselessly philosophize, but that only the rarest of exceptions do." Dieter's images have a sense of wonder about them. There is a certain authenticity in his image making, that is theatrical and fictional at the same time.
