The Dreamcatcher

Sleep scientists often refer in their research to the continuity hypothesis, According to it our dreams directly reflect what happens in our real lives.

We designed and developed The Dreamcatcher – an interactive visual tool that explores the link between dreams and waking life through a collection of dream reports. The aim of the Dreamcatcher was to increase the general public’s awareness about the benefits of dream analysis.

The tool allows to explore sleep patterns and dive into single dreams of real people who recorded their dreams for research purposes.

The project was developed in Social Dynamics Team in Bell Labs Cambridge, UK together with Bon Adriel Aseniero, Luca Maria Aiello and Daniele Quercia.
