The Night

Posted on August 16th, 2016 in Books by Nithin

There is a point in everyone’s life when they experience a state of sleeplessness, a night perhaps when they lay awake having entered a void wherein life’s meaning is debated and time loses its structure. The short narrative written by Skye Arundhati was a means of capturing the essence of her experience with sleeplessness. I then began to develop this project with her consensus. From the very beginning I was taken by the surreality of sleeplessness, a state in which there is a cross over between consciousness and unconsciousness. Much like a dream, this state is often found to have qualities that defy the conceptions of time and space. The completed book uses narrative to articulate the period in which the mind enters a state of sleeplessness to then finally achieving sleep.
