SLLEEPdotnet (2018 - 2021)
As a chronic insomniac, sleep has forced its way into a prominent role in my practice. My graduating MFA project at Portland State University (Sorry to See You So Soon, 2019), SLLEEPdotnet is an experimental digital / physical artwork that attempts to curate both the time involved in, the content produced by, and the spirit of my insomnia. Imminently site nonspecific, it served as a modular space for me to log data, stew on it, and direct negative energies into positive outcomes (or vice versa). It was a place to go during a time of the night that normally felt like a trap. The result was a giant introverted mess that rarely went for more than a few days without changing form. While the end result is documented, any fluid elements along the way were either witnessed at the time as performance, or lost altogether.
You can find a deeper dive on this project in both its online and installed incarnations through my MFA Graduate Project Statement, which is available as a PDF below.
While the project was concluded in late 2021, making the above document quite out of date, the website is still available for viewing at https://slleepdotnet.neocities.org. There is an Instagram component that can be found at @slleepdotnet.
Below you will find snapshots from the physical component as well as a link to a video that featured prominently in the installation.
