A Diagram of Somnolence ny Minjeong An. This piece is about the state of being half awake and half dreaming. Juxtaposing a dream in the awakened reality and a fantasy in a dream, I tried to visualize how organs work in the stage of somnolence (drowsiness) using signs and codes, including the anatomy of a brain, reactions within the nervous system, the link between the brain and the eyes, etc.

Camillo Golgi, Olfactory Bulb, 1875. “This 1875 drawing of a dog’s olfactory bulb by Camillo Golgi is but one of the many astonishing architectures that were revealed by a staining method that bears his name. Its application to the study of nervous tissue marks the beginning of modern neuroscience.” — Carl Schoonover, Portraits of the Mind: Visualizing the Brain from Antiquity to the 21st Century
