Dolphins only sleep with one half of their brain, the other half stays awake.
After one or two hours they change and the other half gets rest.
One eye always stays open, because they have to keep watch (over each other). Sometimes dolphins forget to breath while they are sleeping, in this case they get nudged and awake. The term false awakening describes a change of consciousness during a vivid and convincing dream about awakening from sleep, while the (lucid) dreamer is still sleeping.
In her photographic series “Either Way, Noctambule” the photographer Marie
Weikopf deals with the reciprocity between the waking state and dormacy,
and also with the question how it affects our consciousness when these two states get twisted. Awareness, darkness, doom, and temporality are being opposed to charm, to slow-, care- and timelessness.
Special attention is paid to the night. The photographer looks into the aspekts of control and the loss of control while exploring the particular and intimate nocturnal (inbetween) states of mind, that come along with the dusk.
Not being able to fall asleep or to wake up versus not wanting to fall asleep or to wake up. One calls it weight- the other anchorless.
It can be either agonizing or appealing to resist the natural rhythm.
