Sleep Lab

Recently I have been collaborating with artist Shannon Williamson (NZ) in some experimental research in the sleep lab of the University of Western Australia.  Already a talented painter and drawer, she has recently been trained as a sleep technician in order to further pursue ideas relating to sleep, bodies, relationships the unconscious.  As a curious and active dreamer, I happily volunteered to be her experimental subject, and we have since developed our relationship into one of collaborative experimentation.  The results of this research will be exhibited at Paper Mountain in August 2013, so stay tuned (http://www.papermountain.org.au/).  For now, here is a little preview of how I’ve been sleeping lately:
