Forgotten by the Day

Baris Pekcagliyan

Our physical self is constantly changing, our cells are tick ling, organs are working and moving, even though we see our physical body standing in front of a mirror. Just like the physical body, our mind has unseen parts too. Dreams are part of our non-physical self, they are subjective and reactive to our thoughts, emotions, and expectations almost instantly. Their language and meanings can look like nonsense when we try to place them on a linear timeline with logical sense of our conscious mind. How ever, it is possible to observe them with symbols according to psychoanalysis and many ancient cultures. Process of integrating unconscious to the conscious is a way of self- actualization according to Swiss Psychoanalyst C. G. Jung, as he called it individuation. Forgotten by the Day is a series formed by scenes of mental states between dreams and the waking life. “A dream is a microscope through which we look at the hidden occurrences in our soul.“ (Quote by Erich Fromm)
