Dormant is about an alien state, one that is commonly visited but not often seen. These people are not actively growing, but instead protected inside of their houses, their beds, and their TVs. This is not a critique of entertainment culture, but rather an observation. The quiet and submissive state would regularly indicate sleep, but instead we are confronted with views of people with light in their eyes. What we find is a moment of intimacy between the viewers and subjects through means that are typically distancing.
