The Central Place


Some researchers say dreams have no purpose or meaning and are nonsensical activities of the sleeping brain while others talk about their underlying significance. Amongst all types of different dreams, it is common for people to have what is known as “recurring dreams”. These could be about a thing, an experience, or about a place.

In this series I explore what some of the millions of visitors or even the residents of Oxford may experience in their dreams; a confusing interplay between time and locations in the city of Oxford.

I have based these images on the following descriptions of recurring dreams that I came across on Internet forums:

“I have recurring dreams of locations I have never been to. I never understood why they occur, but the odd thing is I have dreams of the same places over and over. These places don’t exist, but all buildings are of stone and surrounded by water where I seem to effortlessly walk from one place to another”.
