false awakening
 
Bookmaking Spring 2019 SAIC
Have you ever dreamed that you woke up, but in fact you were still asleep? People who experience a false awakening often dream about their morning rituals—brushing their teeth, getting dressed, eating breakfast—until they wake up in real life. This book, which acts as the character's conscience, follows a dialogue that is continuous throughout the character's seven different false awakening dreams. ​
 
One of the goals was to create a sense of endlessness and anxiety that is caused by recurring dreams. When opened all the way, the book takes an infinite form where the seven dreams blend into each other seamlessly. ​ ​
