Cultural shifts in sleeping habits go together with major changes in our ways of living. Today we are witnessing a corresponding shift, in which the possibility of direct communication at any geographical distance shatters the 24-hour rhythm of the time zones. We have the possibility of doing everything regardless of what time of day it is. "Insomnia" aims to draw a map of the sleepless state that this accessibility creates. It seeks to test out whether this hyperactivity embodies a new kind of sensibility and presence that goes beyond previous sensory experiences. A wide-ranging, wide-awake communication that promises new experiences for consciousness and art. Or, on the contrary, is this utopia that we have woven out of optic fibres actually only an expression of an invasion of wakefulness into the formerly dark room reserved for dreams, thoughts, and creativity?
