“Social Bubble Theory” was the result of a dream that I had in February 2020. In the dream, I was in a hot air balloon in the mountains; I could see my sister in another balloon below me, but she could not see me and I could not talk to her. I remember feeling frustrated and confused.
As the Covid-19 virus began to spread in the U.S., I found myself in a metaphorical bubble, where I could not connect with my family or friends. In hindsight, my hot air balloon dream seemed to hold some kind of personal wisdom about my anticipation of the pandemic. In February, it was unclear whether or not Covid-19 would become the problem that it is today, but there were clear signs even then. My subconscious mind simply acted out the information that my conscious mind willfully ignored. Dream research has created some basic assumptions about dreams, the very first being that all dreams come in the service of health and wholeness. In this way, “Social Bubble Theory” is an exploration of subconscious truths being acted out through metaphor and symbolism. It is also a reflection of the truths that our dreams hold, if we are able to explore them deeply enough. full artist statement and See full artist statement and bio Instagram: @saskiatakespictures
