Circadian Rhythmz: Twitch while you twitch
Video Game / Artwork / Duration: Until you fall asleep / Videography: Lizzie Klein / Model: Chlo @deathbysanrio
A ‘sleep twitch’ (also known as a hypnagogic jerk) is a strong, involuntary contraction a body feels as it falls asleep. It is the sensation of jumping and falling while remaining still.
The pressures of 24/7 entertainment are exhibited within an emergent sub genre of live streaming: the video gamer who falls asleep in front of their camera (as seen on Twitch). Earning thousands of dollars and viewers from sleeping, their body becomes an interactive landscape for their audience, turning sleep into a status symbol and luxury item. Circadian Rhythmz is a video game that viewers can play in order to fall asleep, exploring new screen-based sleep patterns and gamified landscapes.
