Sleeptripping Dualogy is a series of two docu-fictional travelogues, Chungking Detour and Siam Rehab. These two pieces are born from artist Joseph Chen’s tours and dreams during a trip to Thailand and to Chongqing, a Chinese municipality which is the largest urban area in the world. In the travelogues, the artist finds himself occupying different realities, through the spiritual and mental state of a tourist and a dreamer.
