“Journey to the other side of dream” is a project with a long history. At first, it was an installation in a fairy-tale closet, after the story gained linearity and turned into a book published in 2018 by ArtLeda, and a cartoon was born based on it in 2020. “Journey” tells the story of a girl who, having fallen ill, plunged into the sleepy wilds of her imagination, trying to find a way to recovery and, dealing with her internal issues and living them in a symbolic field, recovers.
