An insomniac must make sense of their thoughts, bringing them further away from sleep and into a small peculiar space between levels of consciousness.
When trying (and failing) to fall asleep, the inside of my eyelids often do some strange things, as if they’re screens and my brain is a projector. These weird, morphing colours and patterns start moving across my eyelids, then disappear, then reappear and float on. Am I really “seeing” these floating shapes with my eyes or is my brain just simply processing all this movement? Is there a difference?
One night in particular, I thought of how cool it would be if I could detach from myself and watch these morphing shapes and patterns in an actual three dimensional space. At this moment, the idea for Fish Head came to be!
This film is a little peek into my messy, sleepy head. So, welcome! I hope you enjoy your visit.
