In dreams, logic crumbles. When you wake up, the dreams start to crumble too. All you are left with is the threads. Yet sometimes you do not know whether you are in a dream or reality. When everything is unreal yet the chaos inside you is as vivid as reality. This picture is about dreams and what holds them together, but it is also a response to the chaotic situation that Covid-19 has caused to people's mental states. Hope is like stardust. Even if everything else crumbles, it will still sparkle.
