Dream Sequence / Average Sleep Cycle

This is an experimental diagram I made to go along with a video I made called Dream Sequence. I was inspired by Maya Deren's Meshes of the Afternoon. It is a surreal film which questions the notions of dream and reality. I started tracking my sleep as soon as I started working on the project. I felt like there was a connection between the two since all the shots I made for the video was right before I slept or right after waking up. There was a strange relationship where my R.E.M phase almost corresponds to the way the film was edited. So this diagram brings the two together, my sleep cycle and the video's timeline.
