Shifts in sleeping habits go together with major changes in our ways of living. Today we are witnessing a corresponding temporal shift, in which the possibility of direct communication at any geographical distance shatters the 24-hour rhythm of the timezones. We have the possibility of doing everything regardless of what time of the day it is. Insomnia aims to draw a map of the sleepless state that this accessibility creates.
