About the Piece

Hazy stories of our dreams, and our desires in the alertness of daily life create a world of constant balancing between these two different states of being. In Doze Jiří shows a world that balances on the edge of sleep. We are not completely immersed in the depths of our sleep, and at the same time situated in some kind of vacumed space full of surprises. As we drift, we are dozing and yet close to rousing.
