Ka-baalim & Bunk Data - Insomniati Two: 'when you forget you're dreaming and never wake up'



The Insomniati collaboration returns for further audio/visual and textual explorations into the realms of sleepless dreaming. The project uses means stylistically oblique and yet emotionally resonant. We do not delight in darkness nor do we imagine that all is light, we offer questions rather than answers. Those who try to “know” will never know but those who allow themselves to not know will find the fresh face of illumination was always there, just a mirror away. This is the difference between theory and experience.
