Waking Reverie is a portal between consciousness and sleep, where objective reality blends with imagination and memory. Waking Reverie lulls the viewer into a mesmerized state as familiar sights morph into abstract expressions. Concrete objects are dematerialized while the vivid colors of dreams come to life.

The installation features the reflection and refraction of light within a multi-layered octahedron. Using the principle of Pepper’s Ghost, the octahedron creates the illusion of a three-dimensional object, abstracted through multiple layers of transparent shapes.
