Most of my life I´m not asleep and I’m not awake: I’m in between, in an insomnia state of mind.. Dreams, images, shapes, shadows and objects enter my mind continuously.
I wish I had a PVR, then I could just push the rec button and deliver tons of music videos and short films every day.
I have tried to explore my insomniac mind.
Insomnia can be classified as «transient», «acute», or «chronic».
So far I have explored the «transient» and the «chronic» in my Insomnia-trilogy.
The third, the «acute» is on its way…
View the first two films below:
«Transient insomnia lasts for less than a week. It can be caused by another disorder, by changes in the sleep environment, by the timing of sleep, severe depression, or by stress. Its consequences – sleepiness and impaired psychomotor performance – are similar to those of sleep deprivation.»
«Chronic insomnia lasts for longer than a month. It can be caused by another disorder, or it can be a primary disorder. People with high levels of stress hormones or shifts in the levels of cytokines are more likely to have chronic insomnia.Its effects can vary according to its causes. They might include muscular fatigue, hallucinations, and/or mental fatigue. Some people that live with this disorder see things as if they are happening in slow motion, wherein moving objects seem to blend together. Chronic insomnia can cause double vision.»
