Hairy Dreams portrays the inner world of a solitary carefree character. This visually abstract narrative unfolds within a white cave-like space constructed of paper. Inside an origami-like igloo, a surreal collection of images exposes the daily life of an androgynous figure. Through a series of disparate actions, the character continuously constructs and deconstructs its transparent inner world. In this pursuit of an "interior castle", time is a constant presence, haunting yet of valuable companionship. Ultimately, the character’s daily routine leads to its primary goal: the vital need to nourish itself in order to keep the dream flowing.

Morphs - "(...) this work by Lina Cruz,
imprinted with as much sensuality as humour, as much physical prowess as audacity, is a true gift for the senses. (...)."

Morphs - "(...) The unconscious, joyfully unveiled, is carried with versatile sensibility. It is an insatiable spotlight focused on the most colorful and vigorous of imaginations."
