INSOMNIA 2011-2013 This series explores the idea of insomnia as metaphorical scene where biological interruption of nocturnal sleep ritual gives way to a new territory of confluences. The moment in which consciousness and unconsciousness meet, where reality and fiction blur boundaries and coexist in the mind in a recreation of two parallel worlds that conform our identity. The transition between what we appear to be and our true self, which becomes visible in privacy. The reality of each person, sometimes perturbing, takes possession of his soul in the gloom of night. Awake souls who become inhabitants of a space-time do not usually frequent. Where reminiscences of the past are mixed with frustrations, imaginary ghosts and appellants fears head toward us to a future of changing contours. People trapped in unwanted lives, people who maybe try to flee from himself, they definitively abandon themselves or who roam aimlessly through unconcrete spaces in a sort of scenery of fragilities. Images that buil a dreamlike world, disturbing. Fragments of life staged at night, in the complicity of night lights of the city or in the apparent calm of anonymous rooms.
