Story behind “Vivere somnium momento mori”:
Vivere somnium momento mori in Latin means : To live every moment of the dream.
A lot of people ask me where I get my ideas from for my paintings. So there’s no one clear answer to that but a lot of my ideas come to me in dream state during a time that is called * “hypnogogic state”. I think my connection to other levels of consciousness plays a big part in where my ideas come from. Intuition plays an important part too. This might be a foreign idea to some but I follow my instinct all the time, because there is so much intangible information around us on multiple levels that can inspire us. We just have to open our hearts and allow that information to penetrate our souls.
Hypnogogic state: Hypnagogia, also referred to as "hypnagogic hallucinations", is the experience of the transitional state from wakefulness to sleep: the hypnagogic state of consciousness, during the onset of sleep (for the transitional state from sleep to wakefulness see hypnopompic).
