Part of the Reflections On An Age of Anxiety Series. The War On Sleep is a Digital Collage which ambles bleary eyed from one day to the next under the pall of chronic sleep deprivation. With the electrification of night time, daily stressors, shiftwork and constant demands for attention from social media and our electronic devices, todays adults are perpetually failing to get their full nights sleep. In the short term Sleep Deprivation causes fatigue, cognitive blunting, forgetfulness, reduces our ability to manage our emotions and has a negative impact on our mental health. In the long term it can lay the foundations for heart disease, diabetes, obesity, depression and various forms of dementia. Maybe its time to turn over and ignore the alarm.
