do it yourself sleep studies

2010

The sleep laboratory is a space coated in expensive technologies. It is an exclusive territory, open only to those with special privilege.

I was driven to ‘reclaim the night’ by disbarring the privatization that technicians hold over the perspective of sleep and offering this view to anyone curious.

This is a prototype for a DIY sleep study. The driving force behind this creation was the desire to gain a perspective of my sleep in a cheap and accessible way. This action was about bringing the laboratory set-up into the everyday.
