Twilight Sleep

16 minutes

Twilight Sleep is a non-linear narrative depicting images and sensations which function as symptoms of the artist's sleep disorder insomnia.  Like many in her homeland of South Korea, Jeong is plagued by the stress and high expectations of a rapidly developing country.  Motivated by her affliction, the artist takes us through a series of visually poetic and ethereal moments which also hold personal spiritual significance.  Deep into the night, at the end of the waking hour, Jeong's consciousness resides in a state of Twilight Sleep.
