Sci-fi Novel - The Dream Artist - Part 18
Kim Bub-min seemed excited when he was describing how they developed the dream cast software, wandering around in the room, and waving his hand in exaggerated gestures.
"The technical support we provide would not have been able to draw attention without being united with the work of a great artist such as Selim Özben. We have seen a lot of cases where the films supported by the latest technical tricks failed. Art is the work of artists and technology only provides support. Technology allows a film like makeup to be made on a woman's face to express herself better, but the real thing is always the material. Meanwhile, it is necessary to hand over the right of Galip Salik in the dream broadcast project. I've never seen another man as perfectionist as him in my working life. The project, which we planned to complete in three months, lasted for a year and we spent three times the initial budget. But the software format we created has been a standard in dream publishing, and now it is being used in the cinema industry. Since cinema is a completely different field, some aspects did not meet the needs, but we have formed a working group with a few famous directors, and we ensured that the dreams are expressed properly in cinema,” said Kim Bub-Min.
“When we met with Galip Salik, I sensed an air that embraces Selim Özben's dreams, what kind of task distribution was there between Selim Özben and Galip Salik?” I asked.
Kim Bub-min continued his tour of the room and exaggerated hand-arm movements, “He gave me the impression that he was a workaholic. He always wanted Selim in control. He'd been tired and nervous, usually because he worked too hard. I remember that I started not participating in project meetings after the central issues of work were clear because I was disturbed by his attitude. With Selim Özben, they were a rival father-son, a brother of enemies. Galip loved Selim, but on the one hand, he was jealous. Galip had developed a system to compare his dreams with daily experiences, revealing what kind of events affected the dreams. Technically, I was interested in the design of the algorithm he set up. The coding was perhaps simple, but it was still a master's work. He was like the coach of an Olympic athlete who determined and executed the training program. He advised Selim the way of life that could create the most exciting dreams. From time to time, Selim refused to live the way Galip dictated. I think that there were constant conflict and tension between them about how to do the job, that is how Selim will live. One of the best features of Galip was that he was very generous to tell others what he knew and how to do business.
For this reason, I could have detailed information about the methods of study. Galip was a businessman who kept the audience's pulse well. He carefully followed and analyzed the traces of Selim's dreams on the hypernet. How many times the dream has been followed, which aspects of the dreams caused positive comment and negative comments, the effects of geographical and cultural features on the perception of the dreams, how the global agenda has been interacting with the dreams, and so on, Selim Özben used the results obtained from this data to align his work programs.”
I said, “Can you explain what you mean by design of dreams? The design of events reflected in the dream which is a subconscious activity is not easy to understand.”
He stopped walking and looked at my face with care, turned around and started looking out the window. As a model exhibited in a showcase when the time to watch the outside was extended, Peri prepared to say something, and I looked at her face and made a sign of silence. "It is not true that art is consciously performed. Art is practiced in a semi-conscious manner. I know because I have a secret garden that I haven't shown anyone, and I've spent years working and developing it in my spare time. Of course, dream art is much more difficult than the art activities that we carry out when we are awake, but in the art that we carry out when we are awake, the subconscious works in the same way as the dream. Everyone knows that stimulants such as warmth smells and sounds infiltrate the dreams. Again, people who are concerned about these issues can quickly realize that the experiences experienced during the day, especially those who profoundly affect the soul, are useful in shaping dreams. When we add to this with the warmth, smell, and sound of the environment during the dream, we determine the dream sixty-five percent.
“Being a dream artist is difficult and frightening, given the information you provide,” said Peri.
“Every job has its own difficulties,” said Kim Bub-min.
“Thank you very much for the information you provide, last but not least, is there anything that can express to help us find Selim Özben?" Peri asked.
"Selim Özben had a spirit writhing in pain. He was like Jesus, who felt responsible for everything that was going on in the world. He had a porous spirit like a psychic. Although he was one of the most successful men in the world, his presence in the environment was hardly felt. I'm not saying he was a weak person, but he didn't like to put himself in the forefront. I remember him talking about the fall of humanity. He said, at dawn of machine civilization, we are tired, poor creatures, trying to adapt to the speed of change that has become dizzying. I'm just saying that his melancholic personality may have allowed him falling into the clutches of a deep depression. It would be useful to assess the possibility of suicide seriously,” said Kim Bub-min.
