“And the fancy was this: are not the sane and the insane equal at night as the sane lie a dreaming? Are not all of us outside this hospital, who dream, more or less the condition of those inside it, every night of our lives?”
Charles Dickens, Night Walks.
During the night hours Cardiff shows its side less known, that stranger to the tourist and the common inhabitant. Particularly around the River Taff, pre-Celtic name signify dark water in the double meaning of obscure and deceiver, meet and collide situations the most diverse situations, where tangible fight against the illusory. From here the idea to describe through images this fleeting edge of real and unreal, of dream and reality, describing the area around the River Taff that divide the most famous districts of Cardiff: Grangetown and Cardiff Bay.
