David Weber-Krebs (BE/DE): The Guardians of Sleep

In The Guardians of Sleep, David wonders what happens when someone closes their eyes in front of us? They interrupt the present moment and withdraw from the world. They exit from the globally interconnected present and enter their own space-time-continuum. But how can we become witnesses to this process? The Guardians of Sleep is a collective attempt at defiance in a switched-on universe that doesn’t have an “off”-button.
