The Insomnia Sketchbook

This insomnia sketchbook is an installation imagined by the Taiwanese collective LuxuryLogico with Andrea Cera for the electronics. Symbolizing flashes of consciousness, states between wakefulness and sleep, auditory hallucinations, balls of light draw paths in the darkness. The immaterial is carried by a very material, motorized structure. This engineering challenge is matched by the compositional challenge: to imagine a music of affects - aggressions and reactions, rage, fear or depression in which the installation's poetry, without a human component, manifests itself. To listen—with eyes wide open—to what the light reveals, little by little, of the machinery: a theater of attention and tension.
