“How can I use figurative jewellery techniques to represent and discuss my dreams?”

 

Hui Hu has has made material representations of her dreams, nightmares and premonitions through jewellery. Interested in her dreams from a young age, she began recording them at primary school: “Like most people I found it hard to recall the entire dream, everything disappeared when I woke up. As a result I started to give myself psychological suggestions before sleeping, gradually I could remember more and more details of my dreams. Although I know they are not complete, I still enjoy recalling them. After I read the interpretations of dreams by Sigmund Freud, I realized there is some indescribable desire behind each of my subconscious thoughts and dreams.”
