While we sleep we discover our new aspect. During the projection of the subconscious, the standards and rules observed by us in real life are often deformed and degenerated. Emotions suppressed during the day erupt with a vengeance. Honest, gentle and shy people become thieves, murderers, and exhibitionists. We cannot stop the transmission and data transfer flowing during sleep; we are forced to participate in them...

I visualize in glass the duality of human nature, where under the attractive coating of rationality are concealed information and images that are difficult to accept.
