‘Sweet Dreams are made of This’ is a spatial experience with stroboscopic effect that induces Alpha to Delta brainwave activity in the brain – a state of mind which is associated with dreaming, relaxation and meditative rest which typically invites a greater feeling of harmony with our surroundings. It is a state that bring out compassion and love into our lives, a state that stresses the interconnectedness of the entire universe, a state that can motivate us to invite simplicity into our lives and encourages us to pursue non-materialistic lifestyles, a state that give us every reason to practice environmentally friendly ways of life.
This installation is inspired by the ‘Dreamachine’, a creation of the early 1960’s by the mathematician Ian Sommerville and the Parisian artist Brion Gysin, that also was a source of inspiration for artists of the Beat Generation, who celebrated non-conformity and spontaneous creativity.
Sara Nuytemans believes that if we could focus more on our inner consciousness; on the holistic philosophy, oriented by the right hemisphere, on empathy and creativity – we have many more opportunities to find solutions and be able to influence nature in a balanced way.
Nuytemans her work stems from observations of how people interact with the world. What emotions and needs are there behind our actions? Can we make more conscious choices if we have more contact with the origins of our motivations? Can holistic ‘being’ support dualistic thinking? And vice versa? These are some fundamental questions that arise from her work.
