This series explores my personal experience with insomnia, a new territory of confluences. The moment where reality and fiction blur boundaries and coexist in the mind in a recreation of two parallel worlds that conform our identity.Where reminiscences of the past are mixed with frustrations, imaginary ghosts and appellants fears head toward us to a future of changing contours.Fragments of life staged at night, in the complicity of night lights of the city or in the apparent calm of anonymous rooms.
