Reverie Sleep

Project Reverie Sleep is based on Synchrodogs’ dreams, those they have seen in drowsiness. Charting that subtle space between wake and sleep – familiar yet remote, the artistic duo has been recording their supernatural visions and then recreating them via photography.

The project deals with the stage of Non Rapid Eye Movement sleep, during which some people may experience hypnagogic hallucinations caused by natural process of falling asleep. Experimenting with those lucid dreaming techniques they usually woke themselves up in the middle of the night to make a note of what they had just seen, gathering their dreams to be staged afterwards.

Synchrodogs is a Ukrainian photographic duo of Tania Oldyork and Roman Noven who create thrillingly surreal images by pairing landscape with altered figures. They have had numerous exhibitions internationally and their work has been featured in both art and fashion magazines.
