What is the idea of dream in the contemporary society?
How social norms conditioned by Capitalism and appearance influence our body and our everyday life?

Nowadays, our contemporary society, marked by stressed and chaotic rythms, has completly changed the idea of dream according to some unwritten social rules pushing towards an ever growing idea of optimization of our body, our mind and our time. This is happening due to the costant use and abuse of technology, such as social networks. The idea of society of spectacle described by Guy Debord seems real now more than evenr: the desire of fame and the veneration of articial fiction push all our effert towards new inaccessible ideals.
