"Hopes & Dreams" was one of my summer experiments
2012 for my development of my final MA project.
The meaning of these two words become a totally
different one once the are lid up with fire. It represents
the passion, the ecstasy, the excitement within these 2
signifiers. Burning is always a strong act with lots of
good or anxious emotions involved. It is almost the
fascination about the control or even more the
uncontrolled impact fire can cause.
Even the ashes after blowing out the fire can create an
ambiguous meaning which can stand for sadness or
(broken) not fulfilled hopes and dreams.
