On the 19th, we spoke about being trapped in a place during a nightmare. Today we’ll be discussing those places. The settings in our most frightening of dreams often say more about the nightmares themselves. Over the years, many of the places in my own nightmares have made it into my artistic visions. Later on, they were made into some form of art.
I’m not sure why it is that these places fascinate me, but I know I’m not alone. This has been a popular topic here since we started, and I’m certainly not surprised.
The settings in which the terror takes place often gets the mind into problem solving mode. Setting afire the desire to take flight, get the heck out of there. It’s no wonder these places make it into art, or film, or television. They are a mere glimpse into who we are as people, and what gets to us in terms of fear.
What has been your most frightening dream setting?
This has been Day 21
