13th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Altered Images
Insomniac II

I tend to have extreme issues with my body when it comes to sleep, but it can be hard try to explain to others what it really feels like to have experienced some form of insomnia. This image showcases the unpleasantness and darkness that can come with insomnia, as well as the idea that insomnia is more than just a lack of sleep; it is an illness. This image focuses specifically on how technology has increased our interest in replacing sleep with entertainment and even the idea that sometimes we turn to technology due to the fact that we cannot sleep.
