Lucid Dreaming

Nina Lassila

Something has happened and the society as we know it does not function anymore. In this video, the artist portrays apocalyptic situations. The video is based on her thoughts of a possible future and on a lucid dream she had. How will survival function in case we have to live through it? And can we trust the ones we used to trust?
