the sleeping self does not appear
Night represents a time of cosmic rhythm and sleep a time of biological rhythm. The processes that belong to sleep are those of repetition and respiration, this is reflected in nature, in the rise and fall of the tides and in the return to day. Although we have markers of time to bring order to our material world, our experience of past, present and future in the dream state is not subject to external rules and reality. 'The Sleeping Self Does Not Appear' is a poetic exploration into our experience of time, space and subjectivity within the state of sleep and considers the inter relationship between the human body and the physical world.
