Onirical Fluctuations collects and transforms people’s dreams into digital
material presented inside several ephemeral interfaces developed
specifically for this project. The project aims at creating an onirical
atmosphere where the collected dream narrations will be translated and
presented to the audience by mixing animations, sounds and ephemeral
In this interdisciplinary project, Anaisa Franco is working together with
the musicians Paula Reis and Fernando Epelde – who are producing the audio
spatial design inspired specifically by each dream.
Many other artists before have tried to translate in artistic terms the
creative formula of the unconscious. Alongside the scientific discoveries
about the human psyche – from the Psychoanalysis of Freud, to Jung and
Deleuze; scientific explanations in the field of neurobiology of dreams to
quantum physics; technology has played a significant role in exploring and
visualizing the ways in which dreams are shaped in our minds.
>From the early experimental cinematic experiences of Meliés or Dalí to Eija
- Liisa Ahtila or Janet Cardiff, dreams and the ways in which they are
articulated through narration has been subjected to deep artistic
Onirical Fluctuations is an extension of Franco’s artistic investigation,
where she continues to search for chemistry between materials
interconnecting the physical with the digital in form of electronic
sculptures. Using concepts of psychology and dreams, she provides an
imagination and feelings for the sculptures, exploring the unconscious mind
through out the development of particular interfaces.
In this site-specific installation, Anaisa Franco creates a kind of “dream
orchestra”, filling the space with animation, sound environment and
volatile materials. This dreamy atmosphere plunges the viewer into a
parallel reality, mimicking the way our unconscious operates while we
sleep. The dream is a language that has its own rules, where time
perception is experienced as something elastic, relative and very
subjective, leaving the spectator no way to scape.
