The Matrix: “terrifying dreams turned into reality”?

Nicolas Bruno. “Terrifying dreams turned into reality”

These pictures are, on the one hand, quite hauntingly beautiful – I can’t say why, but there’s something Gothic, something repressed and that creates something no one desires, yet we somehow enjoy it at the same time.

On the other, they present a challenging concept: creating a reality of dreams? What first comes into my mind when you think of this, is the age old question, of whether seeing is believe, or believing is seeing? Is reality a personal thing? Do individuals make their own reality/realities?

It is interesting that he seemingly needs the camera to be able to create a reality out of his dreams. Is reality something that needs to be tangible? Do we construct reality or is it something that is just “there”? We will never know… but it gives me an excuse to go and watch the Matrix now!
