Dreamers of Earth and Aether
Set in landscapes, cities and rooms, these very short prose portraits direct the reader’s gaze towards something encompassing, far beyond what the narratives recount. The voices of an artist, a dying soldier, a scholar, a child, an employee, a monk and a young girl speak. Simultaneously surreal and existentialistic, their psyches traverse the chasm between the 20th and 21st century, leaving a poetic trail. The thoughts of each person characterized evoke an alternate imaginary space, where waking life and the dreamed can no longer be differentiated. The narratives vibrate as the visible and the invisible intertwine, disrupting the certainty of a single plane of existence.
