We are a small group of Postgraduate students of psychoanalytic theory at the Psychoanalysis Unit within University College London (UCL). We are currently conducting independent research into dreams, and how our collective experience of the current pandemic colours the themes, narratives, and imagery that appear in them.
The Lockdown Dreams project emerged from the collective realisation that the quality and content of our dream material had become significantly more vivd in light of the exceptional circumstances we currently find ourselves in. We decided to start collecting our dreams, and by extension those of the general public, both at home, and internationally.
