INSOMNIA Series emerged during the pandemic. Photographed during nights that became increasingly long in home confinement. Public lighting penetrates through the window, occasionally illuminating the surfaces inside the apartment.
As the eye gets used to the darkness it is possible to register variations in tone and intensity that previously went unnoticed in its slowness.
In a movement contrary to that of the day when we look outside; at night fragments of the outer world are recorded inside the domestic space. The light composes poetic abstractions dandled by a lethargic state that accompanies the darkest hours.
The eternal vigil of those who do not sleep lulls the shadows and defies conscience in a long silence. It is hard to tell if ones eyes are opened or closed.
Freely inspired by the works Sleep (by Haruki Murakami) and The Machine Stops (by E.M. Forster)
