30 DAY REACH 647

This obedient nun basks in the hot desert sun as she enters a deep sleep. Here we witness her two lives intersecting, her real and dream life. In her reality she is an actor putting on a performance, as if she is in a play entertaining her audience, while in her dreams participates in fun and games without all deducing eyes on her. Her dream life is where she can fulfill her deepest desires, commit sins and play at her leisure without a soul knowing. The desert represents the environment she inhabits in reality–it is dry, lifeless and unchanged. Her dream world attempts to seep into the environment of her reality, which is represented by the carnival cotton candy stand, for one’s true self cannot stay hidden forever.
