In the Arms of Morpheus
An exploration of the fantastic and uncontrollable elements of our existence.
It's impossible not to surrender to sleep. The controllable world we are familiar with will sooner or later pass into the intangible and fleeting domain of sleep, in which we are subjected to a fundamentally different way of experiencing things - things that can't be logically explained. In our dreams do we seek again the opportunities we have allowed to slip by during the day, or do we get a glimpse of a greater universe?
