This project introduces a female acrobat who has to distinguish a reality from hallucinations and daydreams. Most of her nights are interrupted by insomnia and a battle of chaotic thoughts that shape into bizarre world while she is subconscious. Her exaggerated imagination presents a fictional story where small creatures and original objects merge with her reality. Sometimes, she is able to control movements of her body, however, there are times where she is also a part of the audience who doesn't know what happens next.

This project investigates a complex phenomenon of sleep disorder where hallucinations, daydreams and insomnia create an interesting semi-conscious state which produces innovative ideas and creative thought processes. However, another part of this experiment explores anxiety feelings and distress caused by overloaded mind.
