Junior Research (Ongoing)
Each day after the sun goes down an alternate world comes alive. As children, the night and darkness seem so terrifying, but growing up there is a sense of peace to it that is irreplaceable. For the past few years, my mind has kept me up through the late hours into the early mornings. Being awake while the world sleeps is so peaceful yet frustrating. Colors become more vibrant, things get quieter, the darkness reveals itself, reality becomes altered. I can fully immerse myself into the darkness that I once feared as a child. As time passes and the sunlight starts to creep up the world returns to normal for many, but for those who don't sleep, it becomes another day in the endless cycle.
