The secret to a great night's sleep

The art of sleeping

Love art as much as you love sleeping? Well, now you can enjoy both at the same time.


Thanks to the Hayward Gallery in London's Southbank Centre, visitors can encounter a whole new exhibition experience - an overnight's stay on two robotic beds. Two people will be invited each night to spend an evening moving through Belgian artist Carsten Holler's art display horizontally.


Travelling in slow motion, at speeds of less than a metre per minute, a laser attached to the beds will search the floor avoiding obstacles as it moves. The exhibition, which runs from June 10 through to September 6, is designed to bring uncertainty to the sleepers so that they won't be sure that the place they fall asleep in will be the same place they wake up in.


We're fans of the film Night at the Museum, but do you fancy a night in the art gallery? Let us know your thoughts on Facebook and Twitter.
