Where do we go when we dream?
With roughly a third of our lives spent asleep, it is a mystery we all share.
Inspired by surrealism and growth mindset,
the socially engaged, interactive installation,
SLEEP V SLEEPLESSNESS: COMPOS MENTIS NUANCES ,
communicates the transitions between waking and sleeping states.
In America, 1 in 3 people don’t get the recommended
amount of sleep and 1 out of 5 people have a mental health disorder.
These are statistics from a non-pandemic year.
Exploring stress-induced insomnia, THE FACE OF SLEEP reimagines the wynnorific ambivalence of dreams, and
the rejuvenating mental and physical benefits unlocked by deep sleep.
It’s antithesis, THE FACE OF SLEEPLESSNESS,
highlights the effects outer stressors can have on our inner patterns,
and the varying levels of consciousness we
are aware of. Reminiscent of nightmares and daydreams,
SLEEP V SLEEPLESSNESS invites viewers to investigate the
content and purpose of their dreams, and
how perception shapes reality.
