Name of collector: Melanie Ezra
Size: 2.5″ x 2.5″
Identification: 5.2.2 Nauticus ‘Clone’


1.  Essentially art related insomnia; artsomnia is the inability to sleep due to having an amazing artistic idea that needs to be acted upon right now, but can’t because the facilities/materials are not available until tomorrow morning.

2.  the ability to make artwork having slept very little the night before due to other outside factors. This artwork will not have had any thought or care gone into its making yet somehow will magically become exactly what you were hoping for. Example: “5.2.2 Nauticus Clone was produced very quickly this morning. I threw down the pieces without a second thought thanks to my artsomnia. I got better results than yesterday’s clone but at the moment I’m too tired to care and analyse why this is the case.”
