sleepsutra

a story of all the sleeps you will ever sleep

Sleepsutra unravels states of consciousness we drift in and out of from the day we were born. With parents watching over, to sleeping alongside spouses, lovers, companions and friends, to the times we slept by ourselves – all alone, suffering on hospital beds, getting run over on pavements, drifting off in bathtubs to a dangerously drowsy ride on a bike. This is an ode to that sleep – Fourty-four adventures under the covers. 

The Sleepsutra is one foot long and as tall as my middle finger. It comes in two versions – one is black ink on white art paper and the is other white ink on black art paper. It is soft and sensuous to touch and tough enough to whack someone in the head and knock them out.

The book highlights things that happen to us everyday in our dream, waking and sleep states. These incidents have precision and regularity but that does not make them normal. Familiar perhaps… but definitely not normal.
