DreamRec | ECHO

Silviu Vișan a.k.a DreamRec is Bucharest’s wizard of choice when it comes to creating glow­in­the­dark illusory worlds. A self­taught wizard, as his biography quotes growing up around his father building toys for an amusement park, the perfect place learning how to disseminate light and conjure darkness.

About the Artist



After a youth spent absorbing rather distorted projections of the world through VHS recordings DreamRec has been blessed with an obsession for creating alternate realities. It’s something he’s channelled into his own visual aesthetic, one that now regularly appears on club backdrops both internationally and in his home city of Bucharest. Utilising layers of software he creates immersive situations inside party spaces, projection mapping them until partygoers feel like they’ve physically stepped into another dimension. He’s started to earn himself a reputation for being a leader in this particular field too, to the point of being invited by the V&A museum to cloak their internal structures with his own visions of pseudo-reality.

For the last two years he has also worked alongside his long time collaborators, RPR Soundystem (he is also responsible the label [a:rpia:r]’s artwork) in their annual Room One takeover so as he prepares to return to Room One to transform our own space and add another facet to the music, we took the opportunity to uncover more of Visan’s remarkable capabilities and vision.

With one foot set firmly into the clubbing scene, where he leads the video scenography for [a:rpia:r], the other stamping forward with complex installations and art projects developed in collaboration with the Rochițe AV project or the Apparatus22 art collective, Dreamrec has travelled festivals around the world, took part in countless exhibitions and wowed the visitors of the prestigious Victoria & Albert Museum in London when he used Trajan’s Column as a canvas for his video­mapped artwork.

His golden geometries and video art pedigree are clearly responsible for his fabrications of surreal landscapes, odd structures or seemingly biological shapes that tempt you to traverse his ocular inner­verse.
