This paper is concerned with the concepts of memory, dreamscape and the unconscious, including those put forward by Carl Jung and James Sully and seeks to ascertain whether it is possible to create a pictorial representation of those through the medium of plastic or 'toy' cameras. That the ideas or memories held within the unconscious are submerged under the consciousness of an individual suggests the notion of something that is elusive or incompletely visualised, a momentary recollection of a half remembered scence. These images often present themselves as isolated snapshots, lacking in precise detail, with the peripheral edges largely hazy and undefined.
