documentary short
5’ 47’’
A dream scientist at MIT, Adam Haar Horowitz, shares his vision for dreams beyond scientific research.

After decades of scientists’ effort to turn sleep and dream research into a serious scientific topic, the dream scientist Adam Haar Horowitz discusses the complexities of objectifying a fundamentally subjective experience. What is at play between the dynamic of the “authoratative scientist” and the “perfect subject” in the performative space of the lab? And what, after all, is dreaming?

Adam takes a nap in his house, and shares his dreams.
