Vaka Valo

Vaka Valo's 'Dream Diary' series is an ongoing project that began in 2006. The 'Dream Diary' prints take their raw material from thousands of instruction/medical safety manuals that the artist mined through to meticulously create and colour their own mixed media digital prints. Inspired by the Dadaists and Surrealists, and the work and approach of artists like John Cage and Brian Eno, the prints combine these found elements to create otherworldly scenarios merging the hallucinatory, sinister, erotic, and the downright bizarre.
