Somnio Ergo Sum: I Dream therefore I Exist

Gourge

Somnio ergo sum is a personal project by artist/designer Dorian Gourg who lives in Paris.

Here is a quote from his website:

Dreaming and developing an esoteric side of one’s personality has became the cure to protect ourselves from the undercurrent and ubiquitous philosophy of these times, mercantilism dogmas. By associating a “Back to nature” quest with a material disengagement, we are revisiting the antic beliefs and myths, we are exploring the inmost depths of the human spirit. This is the new purpose of thinking nowadays, not to find our place in the world like Descartes but searching our place amongst others, without loosing our own originality. Escaping from reality to find refuge in the fields of dreams, imagination and surrealism: “We are able to be spiritual therefore we are.”
