Temporary Oblivion

Temporary Oblivion

Description

My illustration is a reflection of how I treat the activity of sleeping. For me, it is a form of escape, a way to forget my existential issues with the world for a couple of hours. It’s amazing to know that we have this natural way of suspending our consciousness of the world.
Before I go to sleep at night, I have this habit of looking out the window, staring at the night sky, thinking there must be a way for us to explore the vast universe, or build massive spaceships and see our planetary neighborhood. This habit actually started when I was watching mecha-themed (giant robots) Japanese anime shows as a kid. Since we’re bounded by science, we still have a long way to go and probably I’m lying six feet below the ground before such things happen. So I turn to sleep, hoping that I get to have dreams about them.
The tattered nets on the drawing are an allusion to the dreamcatcher. A dreamcatcher is believed to filter the bad dreams from the good ones. But in my case, most of my dreams are filled with people I know, acting on strange circumstances so I still have yet to experience a satisfying dream. Who knows, maybe tonight is my lucky night?
