Trying to Sleep in a City Can Sometimes Be ... Disturbing

Your room is in a maze of other rooms, and your building is nested inside other buildings. Sand from the desert is building up inside, or is it sugar from the dessert? It's pouring and roaring, and the walls are multiplying and dividing and HOW CAN YOU POSSIBLY SLEEP?

This beautifully paranoid, delightfully intricate portrait of what the city sometimes feels like is by Canadian artist Mathew Borret. It's part of his "Room Series." Check out more of his work on his site.
