Your Dream Inspired Art

Childhood Dream by Firda Istania

Me and my family were in a cemetery (still, colorful with butterflies) and I heard that 2 local ghosts were causing panic. I panicked too. The cemetery was on a cliff, and I jumped/fell to the lake under. I opened my eyes underwater and it was clear, everything glowed down there (just like if you open your eyes in a pool), there were some rocks and four orange fish. Still underwater, I saw this girl (only the lower half of her body was visible) with a red swimming suit, walking while holding her beach ball. Out of the water, I looked up and my mom and sister were calling me. I looked around and the girl was not there. There was no way out so I just dunked again and she was still there, walking around. I did this a couple of times even though I kinda got scared, because I could only see her lower half underwater.

On The Roof by Firda Istania

This was far before I learned about lucid dreaming - about when I was elementary/middle school. I remember this dream well because before I went to the roof and saw this super amazing scenery, I met my favourite anime character. The sky was like this all around me.

Underwater Ghost Cat by Nicole Reyes Alves

I wasn't lucid but I had a dream that I was painting this exactly a month before my oldest cat passed away this year. Funny... I just realized my cat was pretty fond of water.

Flying by Vincent Dileo

I have had dreams of flying since I was a child. I just recently discovered that these dreams were lucid dreams. In this picture I float above my friends and encourage them to spread their arms and try floating up with me. I started creating photographs from my dreams a few years ago during the British Petroleum Oil Spill. My photograph "Time" was the first of these "Dreamscapes" that I created.

Dreamsigns by Joseph Kemeny

The main figure in the painting is on the verge of realizing that he must be dreaming. He is surrounded by "clues" that there is something amiss with his "reality". Some of the imagery in the painting is from my own experience with lucid dreaming.

Seven of Clubs by Arlindo Batista

This is from one of my experiment trials with cards. The lucid dream world was was intensified using certain sensory amplification techniques. Its quality was hyperrealistic.

School Festival by Firda Istania

I had this dream when I was in high school. I chose to make this one because in my dream it was really beautiful. This picture is the hall in front of my elementary school (left), and on the right side should be a track field, which in this picture turned into a vast, dark scenery with a big lake, mountains, and stars behind (kinda felt empty and silent).

Moonlight Waterfall by Fahad Hannan

During the dream I was in a forest wandering around, lost. As you can see the trees in the back. Eventually when I found a water source. I followed it but it was quite dark and all I had for light was the moon. Once I reached the water source I realized it was a waterfall which resembled the one I visited that day with family. And so I drew this in a frontal position to the best of my abilities.

Thirsty Oneironaut by Tea

I'm in space surrounded by seemingly endless void and millions of distant stars but still safely protected by my suit. At first I feel lost but then I notice a rope, connecting me to a tree which is also floating around silently. It reminds me of my home, Earth, and somehow makes me confident that I'm not lost. I can't be lost, the whole universe is my home! I can't be lost because... this is a dream! The realisation fills me with joy and peace, but also awe. Amazing, how real everything feels!

I try to rub my hands together but the suit makes it very hard to achieve stabilization. So I just look at my hands, trying to make out all those little details of the suit. It works, I feel the dream becoming clearer. For some time I just keep gazing the beauty of my dreamscape, repeatedly reminding myself that I'm in a dream. After a while I decide to leave this place but all of a sudden I have no idea how to do that!

I try spinning around quickly but the nothingness of space makes it impossible. As I'm thinking about a better method, a straw passes right in front of my face. A straw!? What is it doing out here? Oh yeah, right. This is a dream. I forgot for a second.

I grab the straw and without much thinking I stick it right into the glass of my helmet. It penetrates it like it's some sort of rubber-bubble. as I'm trying to suck up the whole universe water is dripping out, into my mouth. What the!? I don't get it. If there really IS nothing but vacuum out there, it should act differently!

And realizing that, I feel myself being pulled out into space through the straw. It all happens within a second; i feel how my nose is being stretched (without any pain) and how the rest of my body follows it into space. The moment my awareness expands to infinity, I wake up.

Moving On by Firda Istania

I believe there's nothing more symbolic and fantastical than one's dreams... The red building was a big mall and I was inside doing my activities. I went to the veranda, and the gravity suddenly rotated 90 degrees like in the picture, and I saw two office buildings beneath me. I didn't want to let go from that place but the gravity forced me to and somehow I felt that I need to go there. I let go and floated downward while looking at the mall and noticed the Japanese ornaments and the huge clock, landed on the small-scale offices. Even though there were only buildings and a sky, the boat somehow was there, floating like it was on the water.

Lucid Vibrations by The Full Circle Experience

I have some really dreamy songs about the subject.

Here is the album. I think it's appropriate I post it because the title of the album is "Lucid Vibrations" and almost all the songs have to do with dreams. One of the songs is even called "Dreams" another being "Your Lucid Dream."

Lucid by Casale

I started by writing a kind of clunky piano piece in a hurried kind of way, but then I got tired so I went to bed. The next morning, before waking up, I had a small lucid dream during which I decided to compose a song on a piano made out of pure energy and light. That's right, this song was written while I was asleep. It was actually about ten times as long but I couldn't remember all of it. After I woke up, I hopped on the piano and started working out how to play the song, and I established as much of it as I could remember. Lucid is a strange song, amen.

Abresolute by Casale

Like the song "Lucid", I have dreamed about this song for a few weeks. I wasn't playing it on a piano in the (most prominent) dream, it was different. At risk of sounding like a crazy hippie, I was kind of "explaining" this song to a future being.

Unfortunately it is not easy to remember a dreamt song, let alone convert it to a real life digital production. But this is my best attempt, my best being about 15% efficiency. There may be more attempts in the future.
