Hypnagogia
1995 - 98

Hypnagogia is a series of photographs taken between 1995 and 1998. The title of the series refers to the experience of the transitional states into and out of sleep. Hypnagogia is the specific condition of consciousness during these phases of rest, and may include lucid dreaming and hallucinations. Mikael Olsson made the work at a time when he regularly experienced this condition himself.
