For 2 weeks, I will be creating a performance installation by altering my sleeping pattern and continually reading philosophy books and art criticisms. Limiting my use of technology and keeping a journal of my thoughts and dreams, I will document my process. Astral projection and sleep paralysis is the subject of exploration. Influences are Adrian Piper’s “indexical present,” Sandrine Schaefer’s “Moving Matter,” Janine Antoni’s “Slumber,” and more.
Can we perform in our dreams? When does a performance occur? Who deems it art?
I want to have a spiritual experience with art.
