The zine “Ends of Sleep” is the outcome of a self-initiated brief examining the connection between sleep, capitalism and light pollution. It is a visual response to the book “Late Capitalism and the Ends of Sleep” by Jonathan Crary, which I got as a farewell present when I moved to the UK. Rasterised long exposures, expressive typography and a reduced colour scheme form this illustrated essay.
The photographs accompanying Crary’s words were shot by myself around Kingston at night. They expose London’s illuminated night sky and the lit windows of people’s homes, representing the obsession with the hustle and bustle that keeps us awake at night.
The other works include little experiments or plays, exploring what the creative process of a graphic designer looks like, how a Vietnamese Coffee Maker actually works and how to achieve happiness.
