Self-Examination (No. 1 - Movements of my sleep)
Acrylic, clock module, paper, aluminium, bed.
This is documentation of an exhibition I did in NP3 Groningen, where I was able to live and work for a few weeks in their art space. During this time I was working the Self-Examinations which meant I was working/living/performing/recording 24/7 and building installations with the data(which meant the exhibition was a work in progress). Sleep is a really important part for the Self, if not most important so I thought it was valuable to also include this in the exhibition. I slept in front of the window so visitors could watch me 24/7. Under the bed I attached the first drawing machine I ever made (2014), which drew the movements of my sleep.
