Life Without Dreams is set in the outer space of consciousness, where the surfaces of far out planetary bodies form the terrain for an exploration of 24/7 capitalism, insomnia, and the disappearance of darkness. ” Montaging personal experiences of sleeplessness with archival images of nocturnal owls and bats, 3D animations made by NASA of the night sky, YouTube videos of sleeping train passengers, a sleep scientist describing sleep debt, and an astronomer talking about darkness, this ensemble of images warps the contours of reality as it blends with fiction.
