These photographs are visual descriptions of the psychological
aspects of dream sequences. Rejecting the imposition of narrative, this series is complex, fragmented and composed of subtle
feelings. The arrangement of the photographs into diptychs and triptychs does
not suggest a reference to the symbolic forms of religious art but instead helps
the images to express the feeling of the surreal events they describe.
Baek’s choice of medium is deeply appropriate, as the isolated moments that are
captured and documented in the images recall the fleeting, disjointed memories
of dreams that leave lasting impressions. Unexpected humorous elements and embedded symbolic objects connect the
images to actual dreams, and these photographs can only be fully appreciated
upon close inspection.
