'In Dreams' inspiration

Australian Musician & Composer, Sophie Van Dijk has written a piece of music called 'Synthetic Glasshouse', which was inspired by the fish featured in 'In Dreams' from the Plastic Fish series.

'The piece imagines the sound world of the fish as it moves from being motionless to trying to escape from the plastic bag. It is a sonic collage of light, colour and texture. I was particularly captured by the colours on the fish and the light that comes from behind its find. The music reflects the immense beauty of the fish, as well as the reality that this fish is trapped.

The title The Synthetic Glasshouse implies two meanings: the first the beauty and wonder as light filters through the glass; the scond darker side – the fish’s plastic prison, the ‘glasshouse‘ - Sophie Van Dijk
