Thanks to Laura Collinson my sereis REM is featured in the magazine Creative Boom.

Here is an excerpt of the nice article:

Both eerie and haunting, this photography series REM, by Florian Mueller, explores our state of mind when experiencing rapid eye movement sleep. This is the unique phase of mammalian sleep characterised by random movement of the eyes, low muscle tone throughout the body, and the propensity of the sleeper to dream vividly.

Mueller explains: “Exploring dreams has always fascinated me. Especially the dreams in which one has the guess that it could be a dream, but is not sure. Just this feeling that something is wrong. Like here: the environment is not uncommon, there is no foreign body present, but something is wrong.

“Second, the photographed trunks are remnants of tree trunks. Tree trunks in a nature reserve. Of course such work is useful and necessary, but heavy skid marks and piles of tree trunks appear absurd in such an area. As absurd as 30 kilogram-heavy, floating tribes.”
