The act of sleep is universal to each living human, but the ways in which we fulfill or break that contract with our body—and in which our body fulfills or breaks that contract with us—differ not only from individual to individual, but from one night to another. In Plates Issue 05: Good Night, each contributor offers a window on their distinct journey in sleep and sleeplessness.
With contributions from Martha Ormiston, Biyun Feng, Evan Fusco, Jason Lipeles, Jen Torwudzo-Stroh, Fabiola Tosi, & Joan Roach
