My First Dream
My First Dream is a photo project and a limited edition artists’ book exploring the perception of reality in the context of cultural creations. The work plays with the power of narratives and stages space exploration and imaginary planets. Balancing the blurred line between the real and the unreal, the original and the forged, Brambilla’s work is in constant conversation with the imagination of space exploration, a concept that is influenced and constructed by Hollywood cinematography rather than the actuality of space travel. Employing a cinematographic approach, the work depicts obscure and unfamiliar places that evoke a strong sense of isolation and loneliness, engaging the viewer in a loop between a culturally-created media narrative and its audience.
