Wake Up From Sobriety

by Jiayue Yu & Xinyu Liu

The vision of the dream collapses and shatters into stains before dawn — the tears are real, yet memories are coded. Much like piecing together fragments of a dream upon waking, recalling moments captured in photographs often yields hazy recollections and distorted truths. In this project, we delve into the emotional undercurrents, clues, and narratives embedded within our past photographs. Then we reimagine and expand upon the scenes captured in these photographs through 3D modeling, juxtaposing this process of digital image making with the experiences of dreams recollecting.
