DYSFUNCTIONAL DISCOURSE OBJECTS
print my sleep makes the inconspicuous and unconscious nature of sleep visible and translates it into dysfunctional objects. As an aesthetic counter-design, print my sleep liberates sleep from its paradigm of optimization and idelization and returns some of its original intimacy back to it.
Since it has become the object of economic and social debate, sleep has found no rest. Whether transfigured into a post-material luxury good, praised as a tool for increasing efficiency, or cursed as a waste of time - when it comes to sleep, currently there is hardly any other topic where social norms and collective longings are as apparent.
Using individual sleep data, such as pulse, oxygen saturation and movement, 3D printed ceramic sculptures are created, each symbolizing a different stage of sleep. The materiality of the ceramics is analogous to sleep: the process itself requires time and patience, and the result remains uncontrollable despite all targeted efforts.
