Jung & Restless

Jung & Restless dives into the mythopoetic realm with mandalas and dream inspired images that grasp at enigma. It invokes the oddity and magic of dreaming. Jung & Restless began while I was working with a senior Jungian analyst and stopped dreaming. I started animating short free form experiments, working intuitively without reflection, scrutiny or planning. A decade later I created a film from this material, incorporating mandalas of dream images and classic Jungian symbols. “The soul knows bigger stories.” -C.G. Jung
